Inclusive Tourism countering Disadvantage & Disability

The disadvantaged are often excluded from employment and participation in travel and tourism. Article 7 of the UNWTO’s Global Code of Ethics identifies the “universal right to tourism” as “the corollary of the right to rest and leisure” guaranteed by Article 24 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. In recent years at WTM, London we have had many panels focused on the rights and needs of people with disabilities with the financial resources to travel. This year our focus is on those without the resources to travel – what can businesses and destinations do to enable the disadvantaged to have a holiday or even a day-out? How can the disadvantaged benefit by becoming producers of tourism?
