The 11th International Conference on Responsible Tourism in Destinations(RTD11) will be held on 14 and 15 April 2015 at the Cape Town International Convention Centre. The conference will be co-chaired by the City of Cape Town, Professor Harold Goodwin (Manchester Metropolitan University and International Centre for Responsible Tourism) and Heidi van der Watt (Responsible Tourism South Africa). Hosted by the City of Cape Town and supported by Hotel Verde, Turkish Airlines, V&A Waterfront and Avis.
RTD11 presents an opportunity to reflect on what has been achieved in Cape Town, South Africa and elsewhere around the world, to document good practices applied by different producer groups, and set the agenda for change for the next 10 years. The conference will result in Responsible Tourism Practitioner’s guide to realizing Responsible Tourism in destinations – reflecting the input on what works from keynote speakers, panellists and delegates. This conference, like the one in 2002, aspires to review practice and set the agenda for the next decade and to identify the best answers to the question: How can tourism be used to make better places for people to live in, and better places for people to visit?
