The Power of Youth: Making a difference through Sustainable Tourism
On the occasion of the Youth General Assembly, and in the framework of the International Year of Sustainable Tourism for Development 2017, the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO), Hilton and WYSE Travel Confederation will be organizing a session on The Power of Youth: Making a difference through Sustainable Tourism, to be held on Friday 11 August 2017, from 10:00 to 11:30 am at Conference room 2, UN Headquarters, New York.
Young people represent more than 23% of the almost 1.2 billion tourists travelling internationally each year. Youth travel can be a powerful force to foster change towards a more responsible tourism sector and to contribute to peace through sustainable tourism and how to make tourism an effective for global youth wellbeing by unlocking economic opportunities to create jobs and stimulate entrepreneurship in the world. The workshop will discuss the role of youth in contributing to a better future.
