World Tourism Day 2023

World Tourism Day 2023 : History, Theme for this year and Significance

27th September

World Tourism Day is celebrated annually on September 27th to raise awareness of the importance of tourism and its impact on society, culture, the environment, and the economy.

World Tourism Day was established by the United Nations in 1980 to commemorate the anniversary of the adoption of the Statutes of the UNWTO

The theme for World Tourism Day 2023 is "Tourism and Green Investments." This theme highlights the importance of sustainable tourism practices and investments.

Tourism is a major economic driver for many countries around the world. It supports millions of jobs and generates billions of dollars in revenue each year.

However, tourism can also have negative environmental and social impacts, such as overcrowding, pollution, and the destruction of natural resources.

Green investments in tourism can help to mitigate these negative impacts and create a more sustainable tourism sector for the future.

Green investments can include investments in renewable energy, energy efficiency, waste management, and sustainable transportation.

Green investments can also include investments in the protection and conservation of natural and cultural heritage sites.

On World Tourism Day 2023, let us all commit to supporting sustainable tourism and green investments in the sector.
