UNWTO signals tourism towards Greener, inclusive future

On the third day of its General Assembly in Madrid, the United Nations World Tourism Organisation emphasised on innovation, youth empowerment and rural development in its future efforts.

With the opening days of the most important meeting in global tourism focused on UNWTO’s response to the impacts of the pandemic and uniting members behind its leadership and programme of work, the third day looked ahead to a more sustainable and inclusive future for the sector.

Addressing a special thematic session, ‘Building for the Future: Innovation, Education and Rural Development’, Spanish Prime Minister Sánchez Pérez-Castejón recognized the importance of the sector for providing opportunities outside of cities, both in Spain and worldwide, while also reaffirming his Government’s support for UNWTO’s mission.

Also addressing delegates, UNWTO Secretary-General Zurab Pololikashvili said: “If we are serious about ‘leaving nobody behind’, then we must get serious about innovation, about education and about advancing tourism as a tool for rural development. That means empowering youth, supporting tourism talent, and also giving the best solutions the political and financial support they need to scale up and transform our sector.”
