Thank-you to everyone who attended World Green Tourism and contributed to the success of the event.  Keep an eye on this site for 2012 plans.

World Green Tourism (WGT), supported by the ADTA and the EAD is the only event in the region dedicated to the promotion of sustainable tourism.  The 2011 event brought an impressive line-up of internationally renowned speakers to the conference, seminar and workshop programme which directly assisted companies in becoming more sustainable and a series of field trips to help understand what Abu Dhabi is doing to be more sustainable. 

The careers element of WGT invited local students to learn what a career in tourism can hold.
