As part of the signed agreement, we will be working together to build awareness and proactively implement a number of projects across different aspects of the rapidly growing youth, student and educational travel sector.

This will include working on definitions of terminology in the market, research, plus the application of the UNWTO Global Code of Ethics; given the number of international youth trips is expected to reach 300 million per year by 2020, the application this code has never been more essential.
