About the event
Workshop 1 of the Tourism Recovery and Resilience Dialogue: How to restore consumers’ trust and confidence
Our premise is that trust and confidence have to be conceived of and provided from a holistic point of view. They require cooperation on data, standards and other issues between manifold actors along the value chain and from the public and private realm.
By working on this challenge, we contribute to achieving the following the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs):
- SDG 3: Good Health and Well-Being
- SDG 6: Clean Water and Sanitation
- SDG 12: Responsible Consumption and Production
- SDG 17: Partnerships for the Goals
The Tourism Recovery and Resilience Dialogue (TouRRD)
TouRRD is organised by the University of Applied Sciences of the Grisons, in cooperation with the Global Compact Network Switzerland & Liechtenstein, the Swiss State Secretariat for Economic Affairs, the UN World Tourism Organization, and the World Economic Forum. It takes place between November 2020 and January 2021, and provides orientation and inspiration to decision-makers by linking short-term recovery actions with medium- and long-term strategies of resilience and sustainability. How do we do that?
- We establish a virtual, goal-oriented and documented exchange of ideas and experiences between policy makers and business leaders from advanced, emerging, and developing economies
- We enable a direct interaction between the protagonists of this high-level dialogue and a broad audience, including small and medium-sized organisations
- We run an online platform, which makes the statements, cases and insights of the TouRRD constantly accessible and enriches them with additional relevant information and data
What are the key features of the TouRRD?
- We focus on practical and concrete examples of recovery and resilience measures.
- We address topics related to all three dimensions of sustainable development (ecology, economy, society).
- We tackle challenges of general relevance that can only be overcome through partnerships along the value chain, within the public and private sector, and/or between them.
- Our approach is that important issues can be resolved through (improved) collection, availability, interpretation, and/or communication of data (“data perspective”)
