About World Tourism Day

The World Tourism Day celebration was inaugurated by the United Nations World Tourism Organization in the year 1980 which is celebrated every year at 27th September. This special day was selected in order with all the laws of the UNWTO that came into power in the year 1970 which is acknowledged as the big landmark for the global tourism as it endeavours to aware people about the notable role of the tourism inside the international community as well as to exhibit how the social, economic, cultural, political values are affected by it globally.

This Year’s Theme

The theme of the day was “sustainable tourism”, in 2017. In 2018 the theme was “Tourism and the Digital Transformation”. This Year it is sustainable tourism worldwide.

This year world tourism day is celebrated with the theme of sustainable tourism worldwide. With the recent speech of Greta Thunberg at U.N. – it is quite visible that we all need to stop hoping and praying. It is time to act and make it happen. If we keep on hoping and praying for climate change, our nations, our environment, our tourism industry will extinct. The agencies and countries’ tourism boards with the involvement of government are focusing on sustainable tourism as a tool for development. They believe and suggest that to raise awareness the travellers shall make their purpose of travel towards climate change and environment safe tourism.

What Change We Can Bring

Keeping in mind tourism big magnetism thanks to its social, political, financial and also cultural effect, meriting, and value, UNTWO aims to feature and appreciate the dedication the tourism industry indicates in fulfilling the Millennium Development Goals. Tourism has become the continuously evolving and emerging economic sectors worldwide because of the existence of various engaging and new destinations for tourists. So it has become the main root of income ‎for the developing countries.

This is, not the first time the theme is on sustainable change in tourism. It is seen for the past few years where issues on the environment, biodiversity, tourism and water, community development, cultural protection etc. have been raised and spread awareness about them. In fact, in the year 2017, the theme of world tourism day was “Sustainable Tourism – a tool for development”. This year the event will be officially organized in Budapest, Hungry, to spread awareness and promote people to take action. It will focus on raising consciousness on technologies and possibilities in the tourism industry among all operatives with the respective interest of helping the sector equip for future of work on tourism’s actual and inherent contribution to sustainable development.

Tourism For a Cause

I’m a traveller and have been to numerous destinations. I have started travelling 8 years back, initially, it was my passion and nomad heart that led me to new cultures, people, and diverse landscapes. Gradually with the years passing by when I saw nature’s aggressive moves in the forms of floods, witnessed snow avalanches, landslides etc. I used to wonder why nature is not happy and showing us it’s wrath. I used to think about the reasons for all incidences occurring. This gave a hunch to inculcate the awareness of climate change and cleanliness to the people who would I meet while travelling. Furthermore, would like to mention that I do not work for an NGO, neither an organization, I’m just a traveller and a writer. But I make sure I do my bit when I travel and keep my surroundings clean and organic. Will not stretch it much, but significantly wanting to emphasis on biodiversity, cultural changes, sustainable tourism to all the travellers out there.

 

The European Council on Tourism and Trade President Dr Anton Caragea says “Tourism is the best teacher on the planet.”

 

To end I leave you all with a quote:

We live in a wonderful world that is full of beauty, charm and adventure. There is no end to the adventures we can have if only we seek them with our eyes open.

Indian village life belongs to a diverse world in all different time.

Hodka – Kutch

Kutch, India’s Wild West, is a geographic occurrence, full of pastoral exquisiteness. What comes into view is an incessant desert plain consecutively running dead straight into the prospect, is, in fact, a recurring island. It bears a resemblance to a Katchua or Kachbo, which means a tortoise which is enclosed by sea water. Prehistoric temples, good-looking palaces, craggy forts, flamingos, restrained rainfall, wild asses, callous sunlight, and the cool twilight breeze — wow you have so much to lure in Kutch.

Gurez – Jammu and Kashmir

Positioned in the Northern region of Kashmir and about 140 odd kilometres from Sri Nagar, Gurez is well thought-out to be one of the most striking valleys or a village of Kashmir. Gateway of the primaeval ‘Silk Route’, Gurez also integrates the eminent pyramid shaped ‘Habba Khatoon’ peak which is named after the Kashmiri poetess.
