Tourism Corporation Bonaire (TCB) postpones activities of Tourism Week
Following several intense weeks of preparation for tourism week, Tourism Corporation Bonaire (TCB) took the precautionary decision to postpone and adapt its activities. World Tourism Day is celebrated on September 27th, to commemorate this day TCB planned different activities for an entire week. This year tourism week would have been experienced differently than previous year’s. Opening the week with a ‘One Hour Coastal Clean-up’ on September 19th and closing the week off on September 26th with another ‘One Hour Coastal Clean-up’.
During the tourism week, TCB would emphasize on the awareness of the importance of tourism among our youth, on showing how important tourism is for our islands economy and for the entire community itself. The activities during the tourism week were: poem competition themed ‘Tourism on Bonaire’ with prize winner ceremony for elementary school kids, book launching of the book “Turismo na Boneiru, Bo Futuro!” (Eng.: “Tourism in Bonaire, Your Future!”) and a book tour to deliver the books at the elementary schools, ‘One Hour Coastal Clean-up’ on ‘World Clean-up Day’ and more. These activities that are mentioned have been postponed and will be re-evaluated after September 30th for new dates.
TCB will also present an educational video displaying the different types of career in the tourism sector. This activity is a virtual activity and TCB opted to move forward in displaying this. The primary goal of this video is to create the awareness among the youngsters that their interests or hobby can become their profession in the tourism sector in the future.
