UNWTO Annual Report 2013 The year 2013 marks a very special occasion for UNWTO. It was 10 years ago, in 2003, when the World Tourism Organization officially became a Specialized Agency of the United Nations, mandated with the promotion of responsible, universally accessible and sustainable tourism. Yet UNWTO had been part of the broader UN family long before, considering that the UN values of promoting peace, social progress and the betterment of lives have been at the core of UNWTO´s mandate since its inception.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
