International Youth Day

Celebrating
Youth in Tourism

International Youth Day is a holiday created by the United Nations and celebrated annually since 2000. On this day, people are supposed to recognise the importance and the hard work of the youth of the world and how they have made a difference to society.

We asked our members to promote a young member of their staff that has worked hard to get where they are today and to share how they got this far and what inspired them.
