World Tourism Day

27 September, 2021

Tourism employs one in every ten people on Earth — 100-120 million direct tourism jobs. It is a catalyst for equality and inclusivity, giving women, young people and those living in rural communities the chance to support themselves and their families and to integrate more fully into wider society. World Tourism Day is to foster awareness among the global community of tourism’s social, cultural, political and economic value and the contribution the sector can make in reaching the Sustainable Development Goals. The World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) promotes tourism globally as a driver of economic growth, inclusive development and environmental sustainability and offers leadership and support to the sector in advancing knowledge and tourism policies worldwide.
