21 February 2013
Today Green World Adventures Costa Rica signed the Code of Conduct. The Code of Conduct is an initiative from the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) and ECPAT International, developed both in countries of origin and countries of destination tourism seeks the participation and commitment of the tourism industry to discourage and punish commercial sexual exploitation of children and adolescents associated with travel and tourism. The code that Green World Adventures signed was created by Paniamor and the Costa Rican Tourism Board (ICT in Spanish). Green World Adventures created policies against these practices in tourisms. For the founders of Green World Adventures signing this code is very important to apply this in the country because this way we can protect children and teenagers of any sexual abuse and we will deliver this information to our clients and suppliers (guides, hotels, transportation and tours), it let create a chain of different people who fight against this unethical act or activity.
