TCB started with the preparations for tourism week

Tourism Corporation Bonaire (TCB) started with the preparations for tourism week.

The week of September 21st to September 25th, is tourism week. This year, the tourism week will be somewhat different compare to previous years. With the tourism week, TCB demonstrates the importance of tourism primarily to the youth, not only economically but also for the community of Bonaire.

For the tourism week, TCB will organize a poem competition themed “Tourism on Bonaire”, amongst students from the primary schools, between group 5 and 8. The competition will take place from September 7th to September 18th. On September 23rd, the winners of the competition will be announced and they will receive an award on September 24th and 25th.

This year once again, TCB in collaboration with the author Denise de Jong-Rekwest created a book titled “Turismo na Boneiru, Bo Futuro!”, in which each chapter illustrates a different element of the touristic sector. The book will be launched on September 23rd, during the presentation of the Tourism Recovery Plan to local stakeholders. The primary schools will receive copies of the book on the day that the awards of the poem competition are given.

To conclude the tourism week at the primary schools, TCB will present an educational video displaying the different jobs in the tourism sector. The goal of the video is to show the students that their interest or hobby can become a profession in the tourism sector in the future.

The “World Clean-up Day” that is scheduled on September 19th, is also part of our tourism week. Normally, this day is celebrated with a clean-up at various areas on Bonaire by local and international volunteers. This year, the “World Clean-up Day” will take place in a different manner. To commemorate this event, TCB will organize a “one-hour clean-up” amongst hoteliers and tourists who would like to participate. The “one-hour clean-up” will take place on September 19th and September 26th, from 9 o’clock till 10 o’clock in the morning, at the south-east coast between Willemstoren and Sorobon Beach. The area is fairly large so the participants can practice social distancing.

TCB extends an invitation to the community of Bonaire that would like to participate to the “one-hour clean-up”.
