International call for ideas: Sustainable Tourism is Possible

This competition wants to obtain international ideas proposed by students and profesionals (architects, designers, engineers, business planners and others) for the future of 3 contexts of the Mexican State of Guanajuato.

We are looking for local solution, but with an innovative and global vision about this strong topic of the Sustainable Tourism for Development.
The United Nations have declared the 2017 the year of the Sustainable Tourism for Developmen and the UN agency UNWTO (United Nation World Tourism Organization) is participating to the 10 YFP with the Sustainable Tourism Programe. But why all this importance to the topic of tourism?

The sector of the Tourism is becoming more and more a driving force for the whole society and the environment. Refering just to the field of hospitality as sector involved with the tourism is an old and limited vision of this phenomenon.
If is not controlled, tourism can ruin the territory and the society.
But if it is designed, it can bring to life the territory and the society.
But what does it mean design the tourism today? Which forces should be involved in a good design?

We require that all the projects give solutions thinking to this new features that the Tourism propose in the contemporary global society.
The best projects will be those that will consider the new risks and the new potentiality of the tourism, giving the best solutions in terms of environmental, social and economical sustainability.

An international jury of experts will evaluate the projects, awarding:

1st place: 4000 USD
2nd place: 2000 USD
3rd place: 1000 USD
+ 3 honourable mentions for each area
+ 20 special mentions
+ the best results will be part of exibitions organized in different cities, starting from Leon (Gto, Mexico) and Shanghai (China).
