Tourism makes an important impact on countries and communities around the world. Each year on September 27, the United Nations World Tourism Organization celebrates World Tourism Day to bring awareness to the international community of the importance of tourism and its social, cultural, political and economic value.Today, Playground joins the celebration and the conversation.
We travel for many reasons: To relax and unwind, give our children life experiences and lasting memories, to see the world. But every time we travel, for whatever reason, something more important happens — we become part of a global movement. Everyone should be able to experience that.
The theme of this year´s World Tourism Day is “Tourism For All” Accessible tourism for all is about the creation of environments that can cater for the needs of all of us, whether we are traveling or staying at home. May that be due to a disability, even temporary, families with small children, or the ageing population, at some point in our lives, sooner or later, we all benefit of universal accessibility in tourism.
Which is why, Playground is happy to spread the word to call upon the right for all of the world’s citizens to experience the incredible diversity of our planet and the beauty of the world we live in.
