With the motto “Rethinking Tourism”, the #WorldTourismDay is commemorated today, Tuesday, an event that is celebrated every September 27 around the world to disseminate the social, economic, political and cultural role of #tourism.
🌍 This year’s concept presents us with the necessary transformation of the sector where “putting people and the planet to the fore”, tells us the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO). And this is precisely the objective of the #CanariasDestination strategy: to achieve a new, more resilient tourism model, achieve a greater commitment to climate neutrality and enhance its ability to generate value for the #Canary Islands’ citizens and economy.
We join this celebration with an act from the Hotel Escuela Santa Cruz during which the “Canary Islands for Excellence in Tourism” award will be presented. This year it has fallen to Activa Canarias, an association that brings together more than 70 active tourism companies in the #CanaryIslands.
The Minister of Tourism, Industry and Commerce, Yaiza Castilla, chairs this Tuesday, September 27, at 12:30 p.m., the act of commemoration of World Tourism Day, in which the Award for Excellence will be presented to Activa Canarias, Association of Active Tourism companies of the Canary Islands.
