September 27 is World Tourism Day

As the world comes together to celebrate World Tourism Day (September 27), the UN World Tourism Organization announces this year’s theme: sustainable energy.

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.

Recommended listening: Radio National’s Science Show. Here’s one of my favorite quotes of the year by Robyn Williams: “There’s a massive revolution underway. Steve Chu, Nobel prize-winner and US Energy Secretary, noted this a couple of weeks ago, he said, ‘The price of photovoltaics dropped 80% in one year, and by 40% in another year.’ Has the world changed and we haven’t noticed?”
