As World Tourism Day 2022 is coming close, the tourism sector in each country is preparing to make it a big annual celebration. The theme of this World Tourism Day is ‘Rethinking Tourism’ which means advancing the tourism sector for today’s time and age.
The International Day of Observance has decided to re-imagine tourism with a new perspective that must be eco-friendly and sustainable, for example, Turkey. The use of organic products, green energy, and recycled materials is the sector’s top priority in promoting green tourism. The respected tourism organization in the world wants to grow this sector vastly in their country.
The official day (September 27) will be hosted by the Republic of Indonesia, but the other UNWTO Member States, non-members, and stakeholders from the entire business sector are welcome to conduct their own celebrations and help spread awareness of the day and its main subject.
Since 1980, September 27 has been designated as World Tourism Day. On this day in 1970, the Organization’s Statutes were adopted for the first time, laying the path for the creation of UNWTO five years later.
Pololikashvili claims that World Tourism Day has always been an occasion for people to come together and honor the many and various achievements of the industry. He adds that for the better part of four decades, the industry has celebrated tourism’s unrivaled expansion in terms of scope, size, and significance to promote global tourism.
The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and its 17 Sustainable Development Goals continue to be the sector’s ultimate objective, according to the UNWTO secretary general. The UNWTO and governments at the top of the industry, destinations, and small enterprises at the bottom, he claimed, must all rethink how they will get there, and it will be necessary to restructure business models in order to put people first.
