Youth travel has become one of the fastest growing segments of international tourism, representing more than 23% of the over one billion tourists traveling internationally each year. This growth represents tremendous socioeconomic opportunities for local communities as youth travellers stimulate local tourism businesses, foster closer social interaction with host populations and champion environmental protection.

This latest edition of The Power of Youth Travel leverages the extensive knowledge and expertise of UNWTO´s longstanding Affiliate Member, the World Youth Student and Educational (WYSE) Travel Confederation, and presents various case studies illustrating the value generated from the collaboration between private enterprises and public bodies in addressing the ever-changing demands of youth tourism.
