World Tourism Day 2020 – MacroTraveller
This year tourism has been hit hard and frequent commuters are plaguing the epidemic. However, this does not preclude the celebration of World Tourism Day which is celebrated every year and takes place on 27th September 2020 which the UN celebrates with the theme “Tourism and Rural Development”. This event not only highlights the importance of tourism in preserving and promoting culture and thinking about the future of the business.
Through social, cultural, political and economic factors, the tourism sector contributes to sustainable development goals. But in these unpredictable times, there has been a risk of losing jobs and especially women, youth and vulnerable financial workers are at risk.
As a result of the epidemic, the UN has predicted that about 100-120 million jobs are at risk according to the UN World Tourism Organization (UNWTO). This year, we need to boost and restructure tourism, which accounts for 1.2-2% of global GDP.
In addition, because of the challenges of tourism, there is a threat to conservation wildlife, conservation of the earth’s environment and much more. Due to the sudden decline, there are a number of impending developments that could increase the number of accidental homicides and with 90% of the world’s landmarks closed as cultural heritage becomes threatened in all countries.
This year, marking World Day at a time of great crisis and globalization is especially difficult for young people, women from rural areas where tourism is a major factor.
or for the first time in the 40-year history of World Tourism Day, the celebration will not be held by a single member of the United States. On the contrary, countries from the Mercosur block (Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay and Uruguay, while Chile will have spectators) will be joint heirs. The alliance is an example of the spirit of global unity which focuses on tourism activities and which UNWTO recognized as essential for recovery.
