Everyone Deserves a Holiday: Social Inclusion

Human Rights/Disabilities, WTM London, 2014

The UN Declaration on Human Rights asserts that everyone has the right to rest and leisure and to travel. The UNWTO Global Code of Ethics promotes a universal right to tourism for families, young people, seniors and people with disabilities. We’ll address the barriers which prevent people taking a holiday and discuss ways in which the disadvantaged can be offered a holiday experience – what can the industry do to create these opportunities and create great experiences for those with disabilities?
