WTTC joins UNWTO in celebration of World Tourism Day

The WTTC is celebrating the economic, social and environmental contribution of travel and tourism and its "sustainable development" globally.


The news comes as the WTTC highlights the "huge role" that travel and tourism has played in sustainable development, with the sector supporting 1 in 10 jobs.


WTTC said: "When done well, which means growing travel and tourism in a sustainable and inclusive fashion, tourism is a catalyst for job creation, community development, environmental protection and economic growth.”


The company’s new campaign "Transforming our World" provides an insight into the stories of people that work in travel and tourism, showing how the sector has "transformed their world or how they use it to transform other people’s worlds".
