JAVEA NEWS | 2017 Xàbia Calendar

The year 2017 has been decreed by the United Nations as the year of sustainable tourism and Xàbia's tourism policy will be following the UN's lead and focusing of sustainability. One of the first actions is the sale of charity desk calendars, under the motto 'Xàbia Sostenible', which are priced at 2 euros each and contain fantastic photos of Xàbia. Funds raised through the sale of these calendars, which are available at the Tourist Info Offices in the historic centre, port and the Arenal, will be used to assist with the recovery work of Paraje Natural de la Granadella which was severely affected by last September's fire.

The UN General Assembly approved the adoption of 2017 as the 'International Year of Sustainable Tourism for Development' on December 4th, recognising "the importance of international tourism, and particularly of the designation of an international year of sustainable tourism for development, in fostering better understanding among peoples everywhere, in leading to a greater awareness of the rich heritage of various civilizations and in bringing about a better appreciation of the inherent values of different cultures, thereby contributing to the strengthening of peace in the world”.

The resolution has been described by the UNWTO Secretary-General Taleb Rifai as a "unique opportunity to advance the contribution of the tourism sector to the three pillars of sustainability - economic, social and environmental - while raising awareness of the true dimensions of a sector which is often undervalued".

Earlier this month, mayor José Chulvi said that Xàbia's tourism planning for 2017 would not miss the opportunity to encourage sustainable tourism and explained that work had already started on obtaining the Biosphere Certification issued by the Responsible Tourism Institute (RTI) under the auspices of UNESCO which is one of the most credible and trusted sustainable tourism programs in the global market. He said: "we have many factors in favour of this but we will also have to work hard and continue to take measures aimed at rationalizing and protecting our most important resources. We want everyone to enjoy Xàbia but without putting at risk what we are and the key to our success over the past 50 years."
