Travel & tourism is among the fastest growing industries in the world. The World Travel & Tourism Council forecasts that by 2023, Travel & Tourism’s total economic contribution will account for 10% of global GDP, $10.5 trillion US dollars and 1 and 10 jobs. Total travel & tourism employment is forecast to add more than 70 million jobs over the next decade.
We, as an industry, have a responsibility to preserve the very wellspring of its success – the travel experience itself. History, culture and authenticity must be preserved and a knowledgeable workforce must be developed and nurtured. Tourism Cares is the global nonprofit organization that was founded to fulfill these critical needs. We preserve, enrich & enhance the travel experience for future generations.
Tourism Cares Global Impact Fund supports a portfolio of countries who have emerging, existing and threatened tourism industries. For more information on our Global Impact Program visit www.tourismcares.org/globalimpact
