The World Tourism Network says it’s essential that the travel and tourism industry must work together to create and jointly communicate a safe travel product.
The WTN wishes to state that travel is a human right and after almost two full years of hibernation it is time for the industry to work together to resume travel and tourism and for the world to unite as one in creating safe and secure travel.
It’s time to show the world, travel, and tourism can function again safely.
The WTN emphasizes the need to use proper recommended medical precautions such as being vaccinated, wearing proper masks, and being attentive to the newest medical updates.
- The WTN is calling on all governments and the United Nations to secure global access to vaccination, and tests. This world is only safe if everyone is safe.

In December rebuilding.travel continued but was structured within a new organization called World Tourism Network (WTN).
