It brings together children and youths aged 12-18 with the UN and government officials, tourism industry representatives, globally recognized celebrities, experts, and other major stakeholders.

The GYTS includes a series of international events, workshops, and other educational initiatives that will give children and youth a unique platform to share and discuss ideas and shape their visions for the future of sustainable tourism within the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

The summit reflects the UNWTO's focus on innovation and tourism digital transformation, featuring a specialized internet security session organized in collaboration with the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), as well as a lecture on virtual tourism and Metaverse in partnership with Meta.

Participants will explore different aspects of responsible and sustainable tourism through a variety of interactive activities: webinars, workshops, round tables, masterclasses, plenary sessions, cultural and sports activities, and the UNWTO General Assembly simulations.
