Hostelling International is the global Youth Hostel Association. We are a charity with Hostels all over the world who are already doing great initiatives to make this world a better place. For the 2017 Year of Sustainable Tourism for Development we have developed the 10 Areas of sustainable tourism and like this want to shine a light on all the great things happening, each month with a different focus.
In May we communicated ways to make Hostelling and Tourism more accessible to all. One great fantastic example is the “Tourism for all” accessibility label in Germany: Since 2015, 16 Youth Hostels of DJH’s Bavaria region went through the certification process and the aim is to get all Bavarian Youth Hostels audited, how great is that? Check out what exactly it means for a hostel to go through such a certification process and what are the benefits.
