Ecuador will host the Conference on Human Settlements and Sustainable Development of the United Nations, commonly known as HABITAT. This event is held every 20 years and Quito will have the opportunity to carry out its third edition. From the 17th to the 20th October of 2016, the Ecuadorian capital will host thousands of citizens, tourists, politicians and delegates from all around the world. Advantage Travel not only shares this sustainable philosophy, but the company also participates in this process with their Amazon products through the event’s official provider website.
The purpose of HABITAT III, is to lead a new international agenda that will strengthen commitments about sustainable development in towns and cities, in rural as well as in urban areas. HABITAT had its first encounter in 1976, and the plan that will be developed during the next conference will be in force for the next 20 years. Topics like environmental welfare, climate change, urban trends, and poverty, impact patterns on society; so all these important matters will be discussed at the conference.
HABITAT III expects 30.000 people, including Heads of State, which represents a challenge, but at the same time a great opportunity for Ecuadorian tourism, which has been growing significantly in previous years. Quito will be in the eyes of the world, but most important, a developing city will host for the first time such a relevant world event. Not only the capital has prepared itself for the massive visit, but many other cities that expect to show their attractions have also been part of this plan.
Advantage Travel is participating in this process and proudly exposes their Amazon products through the official provider website. It is extremely important to find solutions that promote sustainable development around the world. This is reflected in Advantage Travel’s operation that shares and uses local resources; either on their Amazon cruises as well as in their hotel at the Pacific coast.
