What we do

For 25 years, the Institute for Tourism and Development has been a pioneer in eco-friendly and socially responsible tourism. It does important work in the fields of information and education: Apart from the SympathieMagazin series, consisting of booklets on different countries, religions and topics, it publishes a series of research papers ("Schriftenreihe für Tourismus und Entwicklung“) as well as various publications and research papers. Furthermore, the Institute is engaged in consultancies and organises training seminars for staff in tourism: the “Intercultural Tour Guide Qualification“. It conducts international contests such as the ”TO DO Award“ and  “TO DO Award Human Rights in Tourism".. With the event formats “Ammerlander Talks“ and “ITB Interjections“ it promotes dialogue in tourism. The Institute for Tourism and Development is a registered not-for-profit organisation working independently.
