In 1989, the UN established the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC). In 54 articles, this document outlines the fundamental right to welfare that all children in the world are entitled to.


A long term supporter of The Code is the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO), the United Nations agency responsible for the promotion of sustainable and universally accessible tourism. As the leading international organization in the field of tourism, UNWTO promotes tourism as a driver of economic growth, inclusive development and environmental sustainability and offers leadership and support to the sector in advancing knowledge and tourism policies worldwide.
