Peace Through Tourism
Become an Ambassador for Peace when you travel
IIPT/Skal International invites all travel agents, tour operators, hotel companies, airlines, cruise lines and travel publications to become members of the Travel for Peace Campaign. The movement encourages travellers around the world to become Ambassadors for Peace by practicing the IIPT Credo of the Peaceful Traveller and the travel ethic inherent in the belief that we are ‘One Earth One Family’.
In April 2016, IIPT Founder and President, Louis D’Amore, announced the campaign and World Expeditions concurrently became the first charter member.
The campaign aims to create awareness that the privilege of travelling provides a unique opportunity to learn more about Earth, the wonder of its natural beauty, and its many diverse peoples, cultures and heritage while fostering mutual respect, understanding and appreciation with each person we encounter in the process.
World Expeditions is honoured to be a part of an industry that is recognised for its ability to foster peace, security, and mutual understanding. We urge you to put the IIPT Credo of the Peaceful Traveller into practice during your next adventure.
IIPT Credo of the Peaceful Traveller
Grateful for the opportunity to travel and experience the world, and because peace begins with the individual, I affirm my personal responsibility and commitment to:
Journey with an open mind and gentle heart
Accept with grace and gratitude the diversity I encounter
Revere and protect the natural environment which sustains all life
Appreciate all cultures I discover
Respect and thank my hosts for their welcome
Offer my hand in friendship to everyone I meet
Support travel services that share these views and act upon them and,
By my spirit, words and actions, encourage others to travel the world in peace
