World Tourism Organization (UNWTO)
The United Nations World Tourism Organization is a double delegation beginner committee, ideal for individuals who are entering the MUN circuit for the first time, but do not want to venture into the circuit alone.
Tackling the issue of voluntourism, a form of tourism where the tourists primarily participates in voluntary work as their form of sight seeing, this committee will explore the impacts this growing trend has had on tourists, as well as the beneficiary. Delegates will look into the main driving factors of this trend, such as the needs of the beneficiary, as well as the areas by which individuals and societies have begun exploiting these good intentions for self-profit. These include reasons such as stereotypes, false conceptions as well as the growing problem of corruption.
Delegates will be required to come up with creative and sustainable solutions aimed to improve tourism competitiveness of these areas, while simultaneously promoting sustainable tourism development, battling poverty, and increasing the overall socio-economic development of these beneficiaries. Through this, delegates can look forward to learning more about the variations in the tourism sector across countries worldwide and exploring what it means to achieve sustainable tourism.
