Life Beyond Tourism

(updated by the Assembly of International Experts of the Fondazione Romualdo Del Bianco, 3-4 March 2018[1])

  1. Peace is essential for sustainable development in the world
  2. Dialogue among cultures is strategic for contributing to Peace in the World
  3. Encounter among cultures is essential for activating dialogue
  4. Heritage – natural and cultural, tangible and intangible – is strategic for favouring Encounter, Dialogue, Knowledge and Respect for cultural diversity.
  5. Travelling is strategic both for getting to know heritage and for encountering the multiculturalism present at World Heritage Sites, in order to acquire knowledge and get trained towards the respect of diversity and protection of our planet that we all share.
  6. Life Beyond Tourism maintains that each World Heritage Site also has the task of promoting Dialogue among Cultures as a form of 'Protection' of World Heritage:
  • World Heritage Sites[2] attract visitors from various cultures
  • the presence of various cultures in the same Site, at the same time and in similar conditions of openness to dialogue, represents an inestimable richness for activating intercultural dialogue
  • travelling for intercultural dialogue represents an opportunity for getting to know natural and cultural, tangible and intangible heritage[3], as well as for exercising and practically realizing respect for diversity[4] and useful ideas on the health of the planet
  • Knowledge, practical exercise of respect for diversity and useful ideas on the health of the planet favor the process of Peace
  • World Heritage Sites become Training Centres for Peace
  • Peace contributes to the ‘protection’ of Heritage
  • The Site Training Centres for Peace ‘protect’ the World Heritage
  1. Movement and Certification for Dialogue
  • in World Heritage Sites the international Movement Life Beyond Tourism’ was born
  • the Movement Life Beyond Tourism favours travelling within a new commercial offer based on a different ethics, together with dialogue for the growth of the international community in peaceful coexistence and for the awareness-raising about the respect for the planet
  • the innovative System of Certification for Dialogue among Cultures Life Beyond Tourism- DTC-LBT  will allow the members of the Movement to distinguish their activity due to their contribution to dialogue, a contribution that can be objectively measured by their own markets.

[1] The 2008 Manifesto consists of the following points:

  1. Tourism is a crucial source of prosperity; 2. Tourism provides an opportunity for getting to know the spirit of the place, diversity of cultural expressions and traditional knowledge; 3. Tourism in its various forms goes way beyond the mere satisfying of personal needs; 4. People working in tourism industry foster awareness of the spirit of the place and of intercultural dialogue; 5. The tourist is a potential harbinger of knowledge and of intercultural dialogue; 6. A visited site becomes a workshop of knowledge and a platform of development for all the visitors; 7. The community of the visited site considers the traveller to be first and foremost a guest of the city, then a guest of the business providing the services and facilities, and only lastly, their customer; 8. Workshops for knowledge trigger a demand for increasingly high quality tourist products not only in terms of consumer services but also, and above all, in value-related terms 9. Architectural, urban and environmental planning and management need to foster 'Traditional Knowledge', ‘Encounter’ and 'Intercultural Dialogue'; 10. Heritage, both natural and cultural, tangible and intangible, prompts people to travel, providing them with an opportunity to increase their knowledge and meet other peoples; thus not only must that heritage be 'protected' and 'enhanced', it must also be used ‘to fuel intercultural dialogue’.
