Protect Children from Exploitation in Travel and Tourism

The campaign "Protect Children from Exploitation in Travel and Tourism" stresses that it is unacceptable for the industry and the travelling public to tolerate the abuse of children in all its forms.

A total of 218 million children are estimated to be engaged in labour world wide, while millions are especially vulnerable to exploitation and abuse, according to the International Labour Organization.
The UNWTO strongly believes that the tourism industry has a moral obligation and a special responsibility to combat child labour, sexual exploitation and trafficking of children.
"The tourism industry is an economic sector that creates job opportunities and enriches the lives of many people across the globe. We, in the UNWTO, stand for responsible and sustainable tourism, one that is respectful of the people and their local culture, and committed to help generate income and decent employment for local communities. But most of all, we stand for an industry that is respectful of human rights. Our industry has, therefore, a strong obligation to be at the forefront of this campaign," says Taleb Rifai, Deputy Secretary-General of the UNWTO.
The campaign was formally launched at the World Travel Market 2008 at the 23rd meeting of the International Task Force - London, 10 November 2008, and will be globally presented on the Universal Children's Day - 20 November through joint and coordinated efforts by all partners, participants, supporters.
