Launch of 50 Climate Friendly Travel Chapters In The World’s Least Developed Countries
Malta Tourism Authority (MTA), Minister for Tourism, Hon. Clayton Bartolo MP: MTA CEO Carlo Micallef, and MD Malta Tourism Observatory, Leslie Vella, will launch 50 Climate Friendly Travel country programmes in the world’s Least Developed countries (LDCs) aimed at responding to Climate Change. This is a key component of Malta’s commitment to be a global centre of Climate Friendly Travel (CFT) as laid out in its 2030 Tourism Strategy.
These Chapters will be led by scholarship graduates of the Climate Friendly Travel Diploma run by SUNx Malta and The Institute of Tourism Studies, Malta which is supported by MTA and the Ministry of Tourism. They focus on the countries most affected by Climate Change.
The aim of the Chapters is to build a growing community of like-minded, thoughtful Tourism-focused, climate activists who are networked across the world’s developing countries. These Climate Champions will also encourage companies to join SUNx Malta’s CFT Registry where they can show their Climate Actions Plans.
