If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.
- African proverb
We couldn't exist alone. Together, we can change the world.

"Coming together is a beginning. Keeping together is progress. Working together is success." ~ Henry Ford
The International Year of Sustainable Tourism for Development
2017 is the International Year of Sustainable Tourism for Development (#IY2017), designated by The United Nations 70th General Assembly.
It is a unique opportunity to raise awareness of the contribution of sustainable tourism to development among public and private sector decision-makers and the public, while mobilizing all stakeholders to work together in making tourism a catalyst for positive change. In the context of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the International Year aims to support a change in policies, business practices and consumer behavior towards a more sustainable tourism sector that can contribute to the SDGs. The UN World Tourism Organisation has authorised Earth Changers as a solution to sustainable tourism for development.
