The United Nations General Assembly approved the adoption of 2017 as the International Year of Sustainable Tourism for Development. The idea of sustainable Tourism indicates a kind of travelling that respects the planet, it doesn’t alter the natural, social and artistic environment and it doesn’t inhibit the growth of social and economic activities. It is a kind of tourism opposite to mass tourism and it tends to promote the weakest economies. The Republic of San Marino dedicated a 2 euro commemorative coin, designed by the Canadian artist Andrew Lewis to this theme, in order to promote a new mentality and to encourage tourists’ respect for environment. The coin’s outer ring bears the 12 stars of the European Union.
