Stay Home Today, #TravelTomorrow
“By staying home today, we can travel tomorrow”,
and Ethiopia looks forward to welcoming you soon!
“By staying home today, we can travel tomorrow”. This message is from the UN’s World Tourism Organization in response to COVID-19. Tourism will be the hardest hit of all economic sectors.
But tourism has shown an unparalleled ability to recover from crisis and is uniquely positioned to lead wider societal recovery, driving economic growth, creating jobs and transforming lives.
UNWTO has launched a new online campaign, #TravelTomorrow, which encapsulates this message of solidarity and hope, through which it is calling for shared responsibility among travellers and the tourism sector around the world in dealing with the Coronavirus pandemic.
When we #TravelTomorrow, we will do so for the right reasons:
- For the solidarity we are witnessing today across the world.
- To learn from different cultures and to return home enriched.
- To support the jobs which go hand in hand with tourism as a sector that reaches every level of society.
- To advance development and promote sustainability.
- For the opportunities that come with discovering the world around us.
