"Travel is the language of peace" (Mahatma Gandhi)

Tourism isn't just an 'industry'. Travelling connects people, cultures, languages, tastes, communities and societies and certainly has impact on environment, society and culture. Currently, the tourism sector must ensure that sustainability does not remain a buzzword, but that it seriously takes responsibility and becomes a good travel industry. Holger Sigmund can contribute to this with his knowledge, his experience and support with some useful tools.
