Tourism Concern

Description

Campaigns on human rights issues connected to travel and for more ethical and fairly traded tourism. Tourism Concern is not against tourism, but just wants it to be as good for the people in Southern (Third World) holiday destinations as it is for Western tourists.

It has proven time and time again that our holidays can often bring unwanted consequences and can accentuate poverty in poorer tourism receiving areas. With its Southern partners it recognises that although tourism can be an industry which improves people's living standards and wellbeing, it is only too often something that works to keep them impoverished. The work for change is crucial as Tourism Concern is the only organisation in the UK campaigning solely on these issues.
