World Tourism Day celebration held at Ahmedabad and Mumbai International Airports
- The theme for the day in India is Rethinking Tourism
- Special Rangoli at Mumbai and Ahmedabad Airports
- Both airports managed by the Adani Group
Mumbai, Sept 27, 2022: One of the sectors which was impacted globally by the Covid-19 pandemic is the travel and tourism sector.
This year’s World Tourism Day celebration is all about bouncing back with renewed vigor.
To create awareness about the day, India Tourism, Mumbai, the regional office of Ministry of Tourism in the western region, created a special Rangoli at Mumbai’s Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport (CSMIA) and Ahmedabad’s Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel International Airport, both managed by the Adani Group.
“The four member artists, in the Rangoli team, created the design with rangoli colours and free hand painting & stencil techniques”, said an airport spokesperson.
This year’s World Tourism Day theme is to focus on the future. As the sector’s recovery gets underway in the post-Covid world, UNWTO, the World Tourism Organization which is the United Nations agency responsible for the promotion of responsible, sustainable, and universally accessible tourism, will highlight the opportunity to rethink how we do tourism.
This means putting people and planet first and bringing everyone from governments and businesses to local communities together around a shared vision for a more sustainable, inclusive, and resilient sector. The theme for the day in India is “Rethinking Tourism”, which was reflected in the Rangoli design.
Further, the ‘Iconic Week’ as part of Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav of Ministry of Tourism, which began from September 17, will go on till October 2. So, the Rangoli design will stay on for the next seven days.
