Global youth travelersFor today’s youth, traveling holds a lot of fun and is just a click away. The millennials with their spending capability and extreme thirst for exploring new places and sharing their experiences are redefining the face of tourism today.

 

Today’s travelers are more willing to tell others about their memories and many profiles in social media abound in travel stories and breathtaking travel pics and videos. But traveling is not just about adventure and pampering. Today’s travelers go for authentic experiences like homestay, “voluntourism” or volunteering for tourism efforts and interaction with locals.

 
People associated with the tourism sector can feel the impact of new travel practices. New breed of travelers are shaping the industry and sustainable tourism is gaining popularity. These developments will be highlighted at the Global Youth Forum (GYF) 2017, a conference organized by the International School of Sustainable Tourism (SST) headed by former Department of Tourism Secretary Mina T. Gabor. This forum will be held at the Subic Bay Exhibition and Convention Center (SBECC), Subic Bay Freeport Zone. The forum will have the theme “Youth on Sustainable Tourism.” The UNWTO has declared 2017 as the year of sustainable tourism.
