Since 1980, the United Nations World Tourism Organization has celebrated World Tourism Day as international observances today. This date was chosen as on that day in 1970, the Statutes of the UNWTO were adopted. The adoption of these Statutes is considered a milestone in global tourism. The purpose of this day is to raise awareness on the role of tourism within the international community and to demonstrate how it affects social, cultural, political and economic values worldwide. The slogan in 2017 of the day is “sustainable tourism”. We invite you to enjoy this day with some of the wondergul images we collected from world travelers in our Travel folder at Pinterest.
