Created by Solimar International, the Institute for Sustainable Destinations exists to provide education, tools, and support to help tourism leaders drive sustainable development in their destination. After working in over 200 destinations over nearly 30 years, we want to use our knowledge to empower destination leaders across the globe. By sharing these skills and resources through our Destination Management and Marketing System, we can help deepen our impact and commitment to sustainable tourism and help build a future where tourism regenerates communities and ecosystems everywhere.
Our team brings together educators, policy experts, tourism practitioners, development consultants, conservationists, and thought-leaders from across the destination development space as our advisors, instructors, and community members.
Our team of instructors and advisors share a vast wealth of knowledge throughout our many courses. With decades of combined experience in tourism and destination development, our team provides expert instruction in a range of distinct topics, from targeted tourism marketing campaigns to sustainable marine tourism development.
