Background

In December 2015, the United Nations General Assembly declared 2017 as the International Year of Sustainable Tourism for Development.

This is a unique opportunity to devote a year to activities that promote the transformational power of tourism to help us reach a better future.

This important celebration comes 50 years after the International Tourist Year on Tourism - Passport to Peace (1967) and fifteen years after the International Year of Ecotourism (2002).
