Spread the word

Use our Communication Kit and adapt it to your needs.

  • The message of the UNWTO Secretary-General can be freely used in conference materials, brochures, documentaries etc.
  • Download the WTD logo and use it for your web or WTD-themed printed material such as t-shirts, stickers or posters. Whenever you use the WTD logo online don’t forget to link back to the World Tourism Day page: www.wtd.unwto.org.
  • Share our WTD Images on Twitter and Facebook and join the conversation on Twitter by using the hashtag #WTD2014

 

Hold an event

Above all, World Tourism Day is a celebration. So concerts, festivals, shows and parades are a great way to take part. The official WTD celebrations will be streamed live on the WTD website. Feel free to link live to this stream as part of your own events.  

 

Launch a competition

A competition – essays, photos, and videos – on tourism and community development is a fun and simple way to get involved in World Tourism Day. UNWTO will be running the WTD Blogger Competition. You have a blog of your own, interested in joining? Then click here.

 

Be an informed traveler

WTD is the perfect time to reflect upon your responsibilities and impact as a traveler visiting other communities.

Remember:

  • Buy local

  • Protect the surroundings
  • Respect the environment

And, whatever your next travel plans are have a look at the Global Code of Ethics for Tourism to make sure your trip is as sustainable and responsible as possible.
