World Tourism Day is celebrated each year on September 27 to spread awareness about the importance of tourism and its impact on our society. ‘Tourism for Inclusive Growth’ is the theme for World Tourism Day 2021. We need you to fully showcase the potential of tourism to create jobs for all and bring communities together.
The COVID-19 pandemic has had a massive social and economic impact. Both developed and developing economies have been hit. And marginalized groups and the most vulnerable have been hit hardest of all. The restart of tourism will help kick start recovery and growth. It is essential that the benefits this will bring are enjoyed widely and fairly. This is an opportunity to look beyond tourism statistics and acknowledge, behind every number, there is a person.
Therefore, The Westin Dhaka has taken the initiative to contribute to the community through cleaning the surroundings. It portrays the awareness of tourism’s social, cultural value and the contribution that the sector can make towards reaching the sustainable development goals. On 27th September ‘21, World Tourism Day, the cleaning drive took place with all associates, Head of Departments, Hotel Manager and General Manager actively taking part in the cleaning process.
“During these unprecedented times, it is our duty to come forward for the community” said Daniel Muhor, General Manager of The Westin Dhaka. The campaign is part of Marriott International’s Serve 360 initiative which promises to make a sustainable and positive impact wherever Marriott International does business.
