The One Planet Sustainable Tourism programme (STP) and the One Planet Sustainable Lifestyles and Education programme (SLE) are partnering to organize a joint seminar on the use of behavioral science to accelerate sustainability in the tourism sector, in particular by exploring green nudging approaches to tackle the consumption of plastic items and packaging.

The seminar builds on the Nudging Strategy for Reducing the Consumption of Single-Use Disposable Cups developed by SLE Programme as well as on the Report on Key Messages for Tourism Businesses to Address Plastic Pollution from Single-Use Plastic Products – A Life Cycle Approach developed by the Global Tourism Plastics Initiative within the framework of STP.
