Professor Geoffrey Lipman has agreed to contribute to the 2011 Sustainable Tourism Ministers Briefing - part of the 2011 Sustainable Tourism Report Suite.
Said Valere Tjolle, editor, "We feel that Geoffrey has more hands-on understanding, of the sustainable tourism movement than anyone in the world. At IATA, then as WTTC president in the 90"s he was the man that fostered Green Tourism"s growth; since then, as Assistant General Secretary and Special Advisor at the UNWTO he carried it on. Now as an advisor to the UNWTO, associate at Schuman Associates and as founder of GreenEarth.travel he is taking it out to a wider marketplace."
"There is simply nobody who is better equipped, and better connected to write the summary of 2010 events and his view of our progress and prospects for the Sustainable Tourism Ministers Briefing"
