The ICOMOS International Cultural Heritage Tourism Charter is approved by the ICOMOS General Assembly

During the 2022 ICOMOS Annual General Assembly in Bangkok, Thailand, Resolution AGA 2022/14 - Adoption of the ICOMOS International Charter for Cultural Heritage Tourism was presented. Voting for the resolution happened between October 31 to November 6, 2022. On November 10, 2022, the ICOMOS Secretariat announced that the resolution adopting the Charter was approved. This is now an opportunity for ICTC to give thanks to all involved.  First, the core team of Cecilie Smith-Christensen and Margaret Gowen, ably led by Celia Martinez Yanez. Throughout the Charter development and editing process, I witnessed firsthand the core team's dedication, time and effort put into the creation of such a high quality document. Second, ICTC colleagues like Jim Donovan and Ian Kelly who did the document review and edits, and other colleagues involved in the review process including Fergus Maclaren, Sue Millar, Sofía Fonseca, Tomeu Deyá, Ananya Bhattacharya, Carlos A. Hiriart, & Lorenza Stanziano,
