World Tourism Day…


Tourism and Sustainable Energy


Today is World Tourism Day. It is being celebrated under the theme “Tourism & Sustainable Energy : Powering Sustainable Development “. Official celebrations will take place in Maspalomas, Spain  today on Sept 27.

This year’s theme aims to highlight tourism’s role in a brighter energy future; a future in which the world’s entire population has access to modern, efficient and affordable energy services.


Tourism, one of the world’s largest economic sectors, has already taken important steps towards this future – improving energy efficiency and increasingly using renewable energy technologies in its operations. These steps are creating jobs, lifting people out of poverty and helping to protect the planet.  

Sri Lanka Post issued a beautiful set to commemorate WTO in 2011 . This set covers all aspects of Tourism. The stamps have been titles with different themes of Tourism. It is one of the most beautiful  sets of stamps on Tourism issued by a country !! Kudos to the designers !!
