The UNWTO (United Nations World Tourism Organization) defines sustainable tourism as tourism that fully takes into account its present and future economic, social, and environmental impacts. At the same time, it has to address the needs of the visitors, the industry, the environment, as well as the local communities. 

Meanwhile, The Ministry of Tourism Indonesia has implemented Sustainable Tourism through a program called Sustainable Tourism for Development (STDev), which prioritizes the following principles: People (Cultural Preservation for People and Visitors), Planet (Environmental Preservation), Prosperity (The Utilization of the Economy for Locals), and Management (The Management of Sustainable Tourism Destinations).

By adhering to these principles and the motto “To Preserve is to Prosper”, Sustainable Tourism in Indonesia is expected to maintain and preserve the Indonesian culture and environment as well as provide many benefits to the nation and its people.

This means that you would have to apply those values into the content submission while actively shows useful contribution. Some of the contributions example are: picking up trash, joining the local traditions, doing social interactions that would give benefit to the communities, and many more.
