“Tourism is people´s business” – this wisdom holds true since the emerge of travel and tourism. It is not only true for guests – but includes all the people all over the world, who ensure, that travellers get safely from A to B, provide good food and arrange interesting excursions. Tourism constantly breaches their dignity and rights. Either by exploitative working conditions, eviction for hotel buildings and airports or by limiting their access to resources like water. Until today, children are sexually abused in the context of tourism. Strengthening human rights in tourism, therefore, stands in the centre of our work.
