The tourism sector covers a wide range of interests. The Retour foundation focusses on and supports those stakeholders that are core to sustainable development:
* local communities,
* small scale enterprises and
We believe that the most efficient way to realize sustainable tourism is to work with the private sector:
* assisting small scale enterprises in their responsible tourism performance and
* assisting the corporates in taking their corporate social responsibility.
As a bottom line all stakeholders should take their responsibility for safeguarding Human Rights in tourism, with a focus on the Rights of Children. Starting from this bottom line, responsible tourism should contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals Within these goals our reference is always the sustainable development of local communities.
One of the key elements in establishing responsible tourism is the development of sustainable touristic products and services.
