The UNWTO Global Code of Ethics for Tourism (GCET) serves as the fundamental frame of reference
for all the initiatives of the organisations promoting responsible and sustainable tourism including
the travel industry, communities and tourists alike, this comprehensive set of principles aims to help maximize the sector’s benefits while minimizing its potentially negative impact on the environment, cultural heritage and societies across the globe.
Likewise, the UN Agenda for 2030 is a plan of action for people, the planet and prosperity.
It also seeks to encourage global peace. It recognizes that eradicating poverty in all its forms and
dimensions is the greatest global challenge and a requirement for sustainable development. All
countries and all stakeholders, acting in collaborative partnership, will implement this plan.
Our vision therefore is to key into the above strategy through the TOURISM AND TECHNOLOGY HACKATHON SUMMIT and become an enabler of new technologies that would aid in the growth and sustainability of the Tourism industry in Africa.
