The United Nations has proclaimed 2017 as the International Year of Sustainable Tourism for Development. The objectives of the year are to – 

• Raise awareness on the contribution of sustainable tourism to development

• Mobilize all stakeholders in making the sector a catalyst for positive change

World Tourism Day is celebrated annually on September 27th.
This year, the event seeks to address global challenges outlined in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and to highlight the contribution the tourism industry can make in reaching the Sustainable Development Goals.


To mark this day, 4th Year Hospitality & Tourism students held a platform in the campus foyer to highlight the contribution tourism can make to the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. 


At IT Tallaght, our students undertake travel - to study, to work, to holiday and to broaden their understanding of the world. With this in mind, this event sough to educate them to travel responsibly and to consider their impact on the environment and the host communities who welcome them.
