The United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) was established as a specialized agency of the United Nations in 1975 with the purpose of facilitating sustainable tourism practices across the globe. It does this by portraying tourism as an economic catalyst, an impetus for infrastructural development, and an incentive for environmental protection for over 100 states around the world.
Headquartered in Madrid, the UNWTO remains at the forefront of international efforts to facilitate competitive tourism markets and responsible visitor behaviour with technical assistance projects and educational initiatives. By acting in accordance with the provisions of the Global Code of Ethics for Tourism and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the UNWTO places an emphasis on fostering socioeconomic growth and development.
UNWTO is an intermediate committee that offers an experience for all delegates with interest.

As Christina’s vision to graduate might finally become a reality, she finds herself elated to be serving as the Director of the United Nations World Tourism Organization at CAIMUN 2020. A senior at Crofton House School, CAIMUN was the beginning of Christina’s journey as a Director, and will also be the ending of the perfect chapter of her MUN story. Outside of MUN, Christina can be found making excuses for her inability to get behind the wheel, consuming one too many caffeinated drinks, and berating one of her Chairs. Christina wholeheartedly looks forward to a phenomenal weekend of debate and hopes to create an unforgettable experience for all delegates at CAIMUN 2020.
