On the occasion of the World Environment Day 2015, celebrated on the 5th of June, UNWTO Secretary-General Taleb Rifai reminded us on our immense responsibility to protect our environment while travelling.

“Protecting our environment is a responsibility we all share. The more we travel the world, the more we become aware of our planet´s inexhaustible wonder, calling us to do our part in preserving our common heritage.

On World Environment Day, I would like to join the international community and invite all tourists to make their actions count while travelling. Together we can shoulder the great responsibility of consuming with care.”
