- My quotes about responsible tourism are included in this 20 Travelers Committed to Responsible Travel roundup for World Tourism Day, September 27, 2017. It’s on Miss Filatelista. Know what filatelista means? It’s Spanish for a person who collects passport stamps, a play on philatelist, a collector of stamps. Love it!

This conference invites 225-250 Canadians from the public, private and labour sectors to participate in an incredible two weeks of leadership development and learning about Canada.
