Spain Launches New Stamps Dedicated to Responsible Tourism

Two new Spanish stamps, commemorating the International Year of Sustainable Tourism for Development 2017 (IY2017), were presented on Tuesday during an event hosted in the UNWTO Headquarters in Madrid.

The United Nations declared 2017 as the International Year of Sustainable Tourism for Development, highlighting the potential of tourism to be a pillar of a sustainable, inclusive and equitable future for all.

With a circulation of 14,000,000, the new stamps will promote responsible tourism among Spaniards and the millions that every year visit Spain.

“This stamp is one of the key tools to reach all those travelling in Spain and engage them in making a positive impact”, UNWTO Secretary-General Taleb Rifai said during the presentation and applauded the Spanish government and Correos (the Spanish National Post Office) for the initiative.

Rifai recalled that the Year aims to inspire change among all those involved in tourism, including tourists themselves, so that they are mindful of their role in travelling with respect for cultural heritage, the environment and the hosts that welcome them.

“It is always a pleasure to present a new stamp but, in this case, my gratification is greater because these stamps are dedicated to tourism, one of the most important emblems of our country,” underlined Javier Cuesta Nuin, President of Correos.
