World Tourism Day 2023: Prepare your cumbersome cameras, unfold your maps, and ensure that your waist pack still fits securely. Every year on September 27, World Tourism Day raises global awareness of the need for accessible tourism.
World Tourism Day is the culmination of the efforts of the World Tourism Organization (WTO), the specialized agency of the United Nations. If you have ever meandered through a charming, well-preserved European village or town, you have likely witnessed the WTO at work. Among the many benefits of the WTO are enhancing local economies and promoting sustainable tourism.
Moreover, on World Tourism Day, the WTO ensures that travel is accessible to all, including those with disabilities and those with limited financial resources. Whether you use a cane or a wheelchair, the world is open for business with you and your companions. Consequently, explore!
DAY OF WORLD TOURISM ACTIVITIES
Consider an ordinary day a retreat.
Today, take a break from your normal routine and ask yourself, “What would I do if I were on vacation in my hometown?” Where might a visitor spend a day? By exploring your hometown as a visitor, you will support local businesses and gain a fresh perspective on your community.
Spread the information
Stability and sustainability in the global economy are crucial for tourism’s continuous growth. Educate yourself on the most effective methods to experience a new country, city, or village so as to leave a positive impression.
Plan a journey
If you’ve been putting off planning a vacation, World Tourism Day is the perfect opportunity to do so. Communicate with family and acquaintances who have never been able to plan a trip despite facing physical, financial, or both obstacles. Together, you can support and encourage one another, in accordance with the WTO’s message that tourism is for everyone.
