Minister Martin welcomes the report of the Sustainable Tourism Working Group

The Minister for Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media, Catherine Martin T.D., has welcomed a report from the Sustainable Tourism Working Group which identifies actions to promote sustainable tourism practices out to 2023.

The Sustainable Tourism Working Group was established under the Tourism Action Plan 2019-2021 and previously published a report which sets out the ambition that “Ireland will seek to be amongst the world-leaders in sustainable tourism practices” and, in addition, accompanying Guiding Principles for Sustainable Tourism Development in Ireland.

The Sustainable Tourism Working Group has now completed the development of a suite of actions that will promote sustainable tourism practices in Ireland. The actions identified in this report aim to establish new research methods, which will increase the level of evidence available, and form a clear narrative for communicating about the sustainability agenda to build a better understanding and awareness among tourism stakeholders and the general public. It will also ensure that sustainability is taken into account in policy development, business planning by the agencies and industry as well as in destination management and promotional activity.
