International Institute for Peace through Tourism | India

IIPT India

Welcome to the India chapter of the International Institute for Peace through Tourism. Scroll down to see some of our recent engagements and initiatives. But first, here's a little bit about the organization:

The International Institute For Peace Through Tourism (IIPT) is a not for profit organization dedicated to fostering and facilitating tourism initiatives which contribute to international understanding and cooperation, an improved quality of environment, the preservation of heritage, and through these initiatives, helping to bring about a peaceful and sustainable world.

It is based on a vision of the world's largest industry, travel and tourism - becoming the world's first global peace industry; and the belief that every traveller is potentially an 'Ambassador for Peace'.

A primary goal of IIPT is to mobilize the travel and tourism industry as a leading force for poverty reduction.
