We have long documented the rise of sustainable energy initiatives within the tourism sector and we applaud this year’s celebration of sustainable energy and invite colleagues to share pictures in our World Tourism Day Group and World Energy Group on Flickr. Recharge your batteries, take a walk and some pictures. We’d love to see how you are celebrating tourism in 2012.
