Since 1980, the United Nations World Tourism Organization has been marking World Tourism Day as an international commemoration on 27 September. This date was chosen as well as that day in 1970, when the statutes of the UNVTO were adopted. The adoption of these statutes is considered a turning point in global tourism. The purpose of this day is to raise awareness of the role of tourism in the international community and to show how it affects social, cultural, political and economic values ​​around the world. The theme of the day was “sustainable tourism”, in 2017 the theme was “Tourism and digital transformation”, and in 2019 the theme was “Tourism and jobs: a better future for all”. At its twelfth session in Istanbul, Turkey, in October 1997, the UNVTO General Assembly decided to designate a host country each year to be a partner of the Organization in celebrating World Tourism Day. At its fifteenth session in Beijing, China, in October 2003, the Assembly decided on the following geographical order to be followed for the World Tourism Day celebrations: 2006 in Europe; 2007 in South Asia; 2008 in America; 2009 in Africa and 2011 in the Middle East. The late Ignatius Amaduwa Atigbi, a Nigerian citizen, proposed the idea of ​​marking September 27 each year as World Tourism Day. He was finally recognized for its contribution in 2009. The color of World Tourism Day is blue.
