Love the World: How respect and tolerance bound travellers together

Post a comment 0

Cape Town - There is a bond of mutual respect, love for the world we live in and eagerness to understand things, cultures and people beyond our horizons that bound the true travellers of this world together. 

And, as seen in an inspiration new video put together by the World Tourism Organization, travellers are the adventurers and the dreamers seeking to leave behind a better world as legacy. 

Recalling that 2017 has been designated by the United Nations the International Year of Sustainable Tourism for Development, UNWTO chief Taleb Rifai says that all of the world's tourism authorities need to “work closer together to harness the contribution of tourism to economic growth, social inclusion, cultural and environmental preservation and mutual understanding, particularly when we live in times with such a deficit of respect and tolerance.”
