ASEAN-Korea Tourism Development Workshop on Sustainable Tourism for Natural Heritage Destinations

ASEAN has identified ‘Sustainable and inclusive tourism’ as one of the strategic directions under the ASEAN Tourism Strategic Plan (ATSP) 2016‐2025 and, in a similar vein, prioritized the protection and conservation of UNESCO Natural Heritage sites. UNESCO Natural Heritage sites are significant not only because they are an “irreplaceable source of life and inspiration,” but because they represent the “universal value of nature conservation for future generations.” These natural wonders serve as both practical and inspirational sources of momentum for fulfilling the wider‐ranging UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The upcoming workshop on “Sustainable Tourism for Natural Heritage Destinations” will similarly act as a practical meeting for professionals to share real‐world expertise and serve as an aspiration gathering of those most interested in sustainable tourism centered on natural heritage.
