World Social Tourism Congress 2014 in Brazil.

 It is in São Paulo, Brazil that the next World Social Tourism Conference will take place from 7th to 10th October 2014. For the first time in its history, ISTO is organizing this conference in South America thanks to the invitation of the Serviço Social do Comércio - São Paulo (SESC SP); its oldest member in the Americas.

The main theme of the Congress "Tourism based on development- Unity in Diversity" will focus on four lines of reflection which are tourism and inclusion; tourism and education, tourism and solidarity, and tourism and sustainability. Through plenary sessions, panels and workshops, the conference will present a rich and diversified panorama of "development tourism" in different continents with debates on the right to travel and tourism as a means of meeting people and the convergence of cultures. Theoretical considerations will also be linked to best practice in tourism development while providing moments to deepen discussions on social tourism, responsible tourism, community based tourism and sustainable tourism.
