Media Release: Global Eco At World Parks Congress In 2014

Ecotourism Australia’s 22nd Global Eco Conference will be held at the Sydney Olympic Park on 12 November 2014, the first day of the World Parks Congress (WPC).

Global Eco will take on a new trimmed down format this year in recognition of the significant sharing of agendas with the WPC. The one-day Global Eco Forum will focus on the theme Tourism in Protected Areas.

Ecotourism Australia has partnered with the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority, Tourism Australia, University of Queensland, and UNESCO (international Centre on Space Technologies for Natural and Cultural Heritage) to stage the event. The Tourism in Australia’s Protected Areas Forum (TAPAF) has also partnered with EA and will take an active part in developing the program.

World Park Congresses (WPC) are held just once every ten years. The involvement of Ecotourism Australia at the Sydney WPC stems back to EA’s active involvement in the 2003 Congress in Durban, South Africa.

“Tourism is a vital contributor to protected areas worldwide. It provides an economic base for communities and builds the economic value of protected areas, contributing to their conservation” said Mr Rod Hillman CEO.

“We anticipate a very strong delegate representation from both Australia and overseas. It will be an opportunity to hear from global leaders who are managing issues such as tourism in World Heritage Areas, partnerships, licensing and revenue generation, certification and quality.”

The Global Eco Forum will commence at 8.30am and conclude at 4pm providing delegates with ample time to move to the WPC opening ceremony at 5pm.

More details will be released soon on the Global Eco website www.globaleco.com.au
