In a significant development for global sustainable tourism, the Magallanes and Chilean Antarctic Region of Chile is set to host the prestigious Green Destinations congress from October 16 to 18, 2024, as reported by travel2latam.. This event marks a pivotal moment for Chile, as it becomes the first country outside Europe to organize this crucial sustainability summit.

Green Destinations, a notable nonprofit organization, focuses on promoting sustainable practices across tourism destinations worldwide. Its annual congress is renowned for connecting industry experts, businesses, and communities, fostering an exchange of innovative solutions and best practices in sustainable tourism management.

Cristóbal Benítez, the National Director of Sernatur, expressed his enthusiasm about hosting such a significant event. He emphasized Chile's commitment to diving deeper into sustainability, working towards coherent and sustainable tourism practices that respect the unique needs of different territories. This event aligns perfectly with Chile’s ongoing efforts to enhance its sustainable tourism initiatives.

One of the highlights of the congress is the convergence of speakers from various parts of the world, bringing a rich diversity of experiences and knowledge. The previous edition in Estonia attracted nearly 300 delegates globally, positioning it at the forefront of advanced discussions on tourism sustainability.

Felipe Vera, Vice President of Green Destinations, shared his excitement about Chile being chosen as the host. He pointed out that Chile, with its diverse natural and cultural offerings, particularly in the Magallanes and Chilean Antarctic Region, is an exemplary location to showcase the Americas' efforts in tourism sustainability.

The selection of the Magallanes and Chilean Antarctic Region as the host is a testament to its sustainable, responsible, and appealing nature to tourists. The region has been recognized for its sustainable practices, with Cape Horn and Puerto Natales gaining notable mentions by Green Destinations in recent years.

Víctor Román, the Regional Director of Sernatur, expressed gratitude for the collaborative efforts that made hosting this event possible. He highlighted the regional government's support and the hard work of the Sernatur Magallanes team, which played a crucial role in securing this opportunity.

The 2024 Green Destinations congress in Chile is more than just an event; it’s a significant stride towards fostering global sustainable tourism practices. It offers the Magallanes Region and the Chilean Antarctic a unique platform for global exposure, networking opportunities, and a chance to share and learn effective methodologies for sustainable tourism. This event is poised to leave a lasting impact on the global tourism landscape, spotlighting Chile’s commitment to sustainability and its role as a leader in the field.
