This year's theme is sustainable tourism.

WORLD TOURISM DAY 2017

Tourism can improve the quality of life for many communities if we support them by visiting them by consuming their products and services that they produce.

In doing so we are improving their quality of life directly by adding that we leave economic pours in their community in exchange for receiving their culture, traditions and teaching that you can enjoy your visit without contaminating or depredating their land to care for future generations, enjoy a ecological tourism

We have to realize that tourism now contributes 5% of the world's carbon footprint; of this 3.2% comes from the transport sector and the rest of the hotel industry, according to data from the world tourism organization.

We must promote the use of non-polluting technologies, renewable energies, make people aware of the effect and damage we do for pollution and depredation of natural resources.

At the conference of the Astana 2017 Expo in Kazakhstan, on the occasion of the Year of Sustainable Tourism, President of the World Tourism Organization Taleb Rifal said:

"We have to make sure that people understand that fighting climate change does not mean that people travel less, our message is that growth and sustainability are not in conflict with each other.

We can still grow, but grow in a responsible, ethical and sustainable way.

LONG LIFE TO SUSTAINABLE TOURISM.
