Global Youth Tourism Summit (GYTS)

Sustainable development and peace cannot be achieved unless we involve young people and create the conditions that allow them to reach and unleash their full potential.

The Global Youth Tourism Summit (GYTS) is a new platform, developed by the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO), to enhance youth empowerment and engagement in the tourism sector. It will be a series of international events, workshops, education initiatives, that will give children and youth a unique platform to share and discuss innovative ideas, visions and their proposals for the future of sustainable tourism within the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

Participants will explore different aspects of responsible and sustainable tourism through a variety of interactive activities: workshops, roundtables, masterclasses, plenary sessions, cultural and sports activities and UNWTO General Assembly simulations.
