This is goal number 8 for UNWTO – World Tourism Organization.
Promote sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all. Tourism is one of the driving forces of global economic growth, and currently accounts for 1 in 11 jobs worldwide. By giving access to decent work opportunities in the tourism sector, society- particularly youth and women- can benefit from enhanced skills and professional development. The sector’s contribution to job creation is recognized in target 8.9 “By 2030, devise and implement policies to promote sustainable tourism that creates jobs and promotes local culture and products”.
We do our best to choose our partners with the same policies. Our first suggested destinations are always based on contributing to this goal. We offer destinations with less tourists, to lodges that use locals for the main jobs, and that provide an echo friendly operation.
