World Tourism Day 2023

The world celebrates World Tourism Day every year on September 27. World Tourism Day is a time to reflect on the power of travel to connect people, cultures, and ideas. Tourism can be a powerful force for good, promoting economic development, social inclusion, and environmental sustainability.

The 2023 World Tourism Day theme is "Tourism for Inclusive Growth." This theme highlights the importance of guaranteeing that everyone has an opportunity, regardless of background benefit from tourism. We must work to make tourism more accessible to people from all walks of life and ensure that tourism's benefits are shared equitably.

A potent strategy for promoting social inclusion is tourism. It can allow people to learn about different cultures, build relationships with people from other backgrounds, and gain new skills and knowledge. Tourism can also help to reduce poverty and inequality by providing jobs and income opportunities for people in developing countries.

In addition to its social benefits, tourism can also positively impact the environment. When done responsibly, tourism can help to conserve natural resources, protect wildlife, and promote sustainable development.

On this World Tourism Day, let us commit to making tourism a force for good. Let us work to ensure that everyone can benefit from tourism and that tourism is in a sustainable and environmentally friendly way.
