The proposed Action Plan is structured around 5 main axes:
- the functioning of ISTO which includes internal methodology, commissions and working groups, the honorary committee and wise men, and international partnerships and development with the objective of opening up towards Asia.
- information, which includes the Social and Solidarity Tourism Observatory project, a social and solidarity tourism library, and in terms of internal information, the in-depth analysis of the members' database.
- training / education where we find the organization of CafecISTO and business circles as well as training through modules to be developed according to the requirements.
- communication with digital communication, major ISTO events such as the Congress or the International Week and new initiatives such as the awards on good practices as well as the ISTO label and recognitions.
- the financial viability which is based on maintaining and expanding the number of members, finding partners and sponsors for the development of the Observatory and participation in European and international projects.
