IIPT – International Institute for Peace through Tourism
presentation by president Louis D’Amore
Tourism generates directly and indirectly about 10% of jobs around the world. Louis D‘Am founded the organization in 1986 in order to promote the development of sustainable tourism.
The group is interested in promoting a “higher purpose“ of tourism.
Much of the work involves in establishing peace parks around the world; currently there are about 450, with the aim of having 2000 by the year 2020. In many cases local Rotary clubs are sponsors of these parks.
