Tourism and sport are two fundamental pillars for the implementation and dissemination of the Sustainable Development Goals on a global scale. We’ll discuss the importance of promoting responsible, sustainable and accessible tourism and how the WTO offers leadership and support to the sector to increase knowledge and promote policies that enable economic growth with inclusive development and the necessary environmental sustainability. Sport is also a major facilitator in sustainable development, increasingly contributing to making development and peace a reality by promoting tolerance and respect, empowering women, young people, individuals and communities, as well as working towards health, education and social inclusion goals. The Royal Spanish Swimming Federation (RFEN in its Spanish initials) will tell us about the projects they are working on to improve sustainable development in pool-based sports.
