Human rights matter – also in tourism!

On the international Human Rights Day on December 10, Naturefriends International appeals to the tourism industry to increase the commitment to human rights.

On December 10, 1948, the UN general assembly agreed to Resolution 217 A, the “Universal Declaration of Human Rights”. Today, 70 years later, human rights are still being violated in many parts of the world – also in the tourism industry.

Leave sand castles, not plastic! –  Naturefriends International gives tips to create less plastic waste in daily life and on holiday.

Ten million tons of plastic waste go into the oceans each year. Popular destinations, such as Mallorca, Turkey, Bali or the Maldives, fight against the plastic flood on their beaches. Pictures of sea animals killed by plastic waste dampen the joyful anticipation before the holiday. A big part of that plastic waste is being produced by the tourists themselves – not only sabotaging their own holiday but also damaging sensitive ecosystems. Naturefriends International launches a campaign on how to avoid plastic waste especially during the holidays.
