Category: Interest Groups

World Tourism Network's strength is to discuss issues of global concerns, ideas, and activities. All members are invited to join any interest group. Advocacy and research is a big part of what interest groups contribute to WTN members. Anyone joining a chapter also must join the WTN Global platform.
