Planting Trees on World Tourism Day 2015 in Arunachal Pradesh, India.
Children showed great enthusiasm in learning.

Celebrated every year on September 27, World Tourism Day is an event which fosters awareness among the international community on the importance of tourism and its social, cultural, political and economic value which has the potential to change the world for the positive.

The focus for World Tourism Day 2015 is on the transformative potential of #1billiontourists; defining the more than one billion tourists who every year travel to an international destination, a movement which has made tourism a leading economic powerhouse, providing for 10% of world’s GDP and 6% of its total exports.

 

 

Responsible Tourism Project by Greener Pastures in Arunachal Pradesh, India.
The event was well participated by both members of school and village.

Just like the previous years, Greener Pastures once again celebrated World Tourism Day this year by bringing in participation from children and rural communities. This time, we organized the event at the Chakma tribal village of M’pen near Namdapha National Park in remote Changlang district of eastern Arunachal Pradesh. We chose the national park due to its importance in biodiversity and of its potential to benefit from tourism. With the villagers and children joining us in the village school, the event was focussed on environment, conservation and positives of responsible tourism, with activities which included nature painting, tree planting, discussions, singing and gifts. You can read more about the event in our blog here.
