The International Ecotourism Society (TIES)






The International Ecotourism Society (TIES) is a global network of professionals, institutions and individuals helping to put environmental and socially accountable principles into practice within the ecotourism industry.  TIES’ revised (2015) definition is "Responsible travel to natural areas that conserves the environment, sustains the well-being of the local people and involves interpretation and education" with the condition that education is for staff and guests.  The organisation does this by:

  •     Creating an international network of individuals, institutions and the tourism industry
  •     Educating tourists and tourism professionals
  •     Influencing the tourism industry, public institutions and donors to use the principles of ecotourism in their operations and policies
