The International Institute for Peace Through Tourism is a 34-year-old not for profit organization dedicated to fostering travel and tourism initiatives that contribute to international understanding, cooperation among nations, improved quality of the environment, cultural enhancement and the preservation of heritage, poverty reduction, reconciliation and healing wounds of conflicts; and through these initiatives, helping to bring about a peaceful and sustainable world.
It is committed to making travel and tourism, the world’s largest industry – the world’s first ‘Global Peace Industry’ and the belief that every traveler is potentially an ‘Ambassador for Peace.’
The coronavirus pandemic has brought home the fragility of our planet. It’s a global crisis and needs a coordinated global response.
Now, more than ever, there’s a need for people to connect meaningfully – in ways meaningful for themselves and meaningful for the planet.
IIPT has always espoused the higher paradigm of tourism – the quest for global peace and harmony by eliminating the fear of “the other.” We believe the only way to achieve this is by joining hands and we are happy to be part of this initiative.
