By: Caribbean Journal Staff - May 11, 2017

A major new tourism conference is coming to the island of St. Kitts.

The Caribbean Tourism Organization is partnering with the island to host a sustainable tourism forum called the Climate Smart Sustainable Tourism Forum, held in observance of the International Year of Sustainable Tourism for Development.

The forum will bring together local, regional and international representatives from both public and private sector tourism entities.

“The CTO is honored to partner with St. Kitts and Nevis to host this forum, which will explore various facets of sustainable tourism, in view of the threats and opportunities for regional tourism development, as a result of climate variability and climate change,” said Amanda Charles, the CTO’s sustainable tourism specialist.

The forum will also include field visits, a meeting of the CTO’s Sustainable Tourism Technical Committee and winning presentations from the CTO’s Primary School Tourism Writing Competition.
