On 13 December 2012, the one-billionth tourist will arrive somewhere in the world.
That’s right, one billion tourists traveling the world in a single year.
Imagine if every one of these tourists made a conscious decision to protect the people and environments they visited. Imagine how much water and energy we could save if one billion tourists simply used their towels for more than a day. Imagine how many people would benefit if one billion tourists bought locally.
Join us and help spread the message that one billion tourists mean one billion opportunities.
The World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) is the United Nations agency responsible for the promotion of responsible, sustainable and universally accessible tourism. http://www.unwto.org
