Thought to share a couple of interesting founds online. See, I read about culture, psychology and stuff which gets me thinking. I will try to find actionable reads which enables my reader to take action. Nothing is more boring than to spend time reading without any sort of action.
2017 IY Sustainable Tourism for Development
I came across a striking event initiated by the United Nations about fostering better understanding among peoples everywhere, in leading to a greater awareness of the rich heritage of various civilizations and in bringing about a better appreciation of the inherent values of different cultures, thereby contributing to the strengthening of peace in the world.
Let us together take advantage of the International Year: Let's promote actions which fosters cultural understanding at all levels, including through international cooperation, and to support sustainable tourism as a means of promoting and accelerating sustainable development, especially poverty eradication.
Do you know a hotel or guesthouse in your area? How does the little corner of the world differ? Going to Starbucks or any other of the big chains might be convenient but if we only support big corporations or brands, the smaller one's can't make it in the business. Haven't we all heard about corner shops closing down mostly in small villages because consumers drive into the next city to find more selection, or just goes on Amazon for the sake of super convenience.
Let's look around our locally, where can we support others? If we, the people on the Internet, could help others find a wider audience of supporters. That's how I envision a better world. For instance, I like to shop my vegetables at the private corner shop, so when I go buy my groceries for the week, I'm not going to Tesco. Not only do I support a local business but I also get the experience of a Turkish business in the UK.
