This year’s World Tourism Day 2021 has been designated by the UNWTO as the day to focus on “Tourism for Inclusive Growth” – a theme that is, I am sure, very important to all of us in the global Travel & Tourism community. Protecting the communities we visit takes our active participation. As an industry, working closely with local organizations in destinations to invest in their community members and small businesses with tourism dollars is a critical part of strong recovery. As travelers, remembering that we are guests in someone else’s home, and that our travel decisions have a measurable impact.
For this year’s World Tourism Day, I am joined by the Special Advisor to the Secretary General of the UNWTO, and fellow Tourism Cares Board Member, Anita Mendiratta. Join us as we discuss this year’s theme, and why we should have optimism for the industry looking forward, building forward better.
