Tourism has untold and amazing potential. This year there will be nearly 1 billion international trips and probably another 5 billion domestic and regional ones. It’s simply the world’s biggest industry. That represents a lot of people, a lot of employment and a lot of money – totaling massive potential power.
Just think how much bigger this power could be and how much happiness and freedom it could bring:
For world peace… This is a real opportunity for PEACE through tourism
For poverty-eradication … Poor countries get $10bn from tourism, how to make it really work to eradicate poverty?
For harmony and understanding… EU president puts sustainable and responsible tourism top of agenda
