The 2021 conference adopts the theme of “Sustainable Tourism Development and Global Crises”. The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development formulated by the United Nations (UN) General Assembly in 2015 has set out a bold framework that steers global development towards sustainability. The agenda has defined 17 SDGs that aim at confronting global sustainability challenges and acting for people, planet and prosperity. Based on this universal vision, sustainable tourism has been advocated and supported by the UN as a key driver for development in achieving these SDGs. Looking beyond the 2019 conference that addressed the relationship between tourism and these SDGs, as well as the recent strategic effort by World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) to tackle the global crisis of tourism industry and sustainability caused by the COVID-19 outbreak, the 2021 conference aims to articulate the critical position of sustainable tourism and explore its role and potential in contributing to face a world that is full of uncertainties, crises and disasters.
