Our Partners Help Empower Youth to be Leaders of Change

BANGKOK, June 21, 2018— Global Peace Foundation (GPF) and the Pacific Asia Travel Association (PATA) officially announced an ongoing shared partnership in continuing efforts to engage youth leaders in an innovative, values-based approach to peacebuilding.

Participants of the Asia Pacific Youth & Sustainable Tourism Workshop in Bangkok, Thailand

Earlier this year the partnership provided an opportunity for young leaders from around the world to participate in the Asia-Pacific Youth and Sustainable Tourism Workshop as part of the 2018 Global Peace Youth Exchange. Students and representatives from the travel and tourism industry came together to examine how the industry can contribute to achieving sustainable development goals.

The event was also supported by the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific.
