Today is World Tourism Day – a day marked by the United Nations World Tourism Organisation, that reflects on the role of tourism – looking at various aspects of tourism through a global theme. This year the theme is Tourism and Water: Protecting Our Common Future.
Living as we do in a beautiful place surrounded by oceans, we thought today’s tribute should be to our home – Cape Town. A place we love and live in – with an ocean that is fierce, magical, bracing and soothing all at once. It is also an ocean that is home to life and it is this aspect that is ours to protect and consider. The ocean feels as if it has always been there but today we should act to make sure it is there for the future.
Watch this beautiful short film made in Cape Town by Lauren de Vos; a researcher at the University of Cape Town’s Marine Biology Research Centre. Thank you for a worthy tribute, Lauren. #lovecapetown
