The diversity of our world unites us and gives us the chance to explore, engage and experience the best that local culture and communities have to offer. Respecting our world and all that makes us different and unique will enhance your travel experience.
In the framework of the International Year on Sustainable Tourism for Development 2017 (IY2017), and on the occasion of World Tourism Day 2017 (WTD2017), on September 27, the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) is asking travellers to commit to being more responsible and pledging to #TravelEnjoyRespect.
The purpose is to engage tourists in making the sector a catalyst for positive change. Travellers are invited to follow the recommendations in the manual of ‘Tips for a Responsible Traveller’, developed by the World Committee on Tourism Ethics in line with the UNWTO Global Code of Ethics for Tourism, that will help them make responsible choices when travelling and have a positive impact on the destinations they visit.
