The UNESCO Chair on Touristic Planning and Sustainable Development (PTyDS) of the University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria (ULPGC) has the main objective to promote and implement cooperation activities with developing countries in the Canary Islands environment (Africa and Latin America) on topics generally related to tourism, environment and sustainable development.

The Chair is directed by Carmelo J. León González, Professor of Applied Economics at the ULPGC. A group of professors from the University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria also participate together with other scientific and academic institutions, companies and organizations, in Spain and in the countries where its activities are carried out. Therefore, we follow a networking system, which has an interdisciplinary nature and it is supported by specialists from different areas, who occasionally provide their experience and knowledge to the development of the projects.

The core of this Chair is the contribution that the touristic activity does or can do to generate economic and social welfare for the aimed communities, considering the preservation of the nature, their social, cultural and historical values and their participation and implication in the planning and growth process.
