Started in June 2020, this platform has been created for the Youth in the industry.
SLAITO Youth will endeavor to improve the sustainability of the tourism industry through industry wise initiatives to reduce the use of single use plastics as well as reducing the tourism’s impact on our wildlife, parks, coral reefs and our environment in general.
The importance of working with foreign tour operators will also be a topic of discussion during their outreach as studies have shown that 65% of tourists visiting the country are said to have booked their trip through a DMC in the recent past.
In addition, they also hope to increase the reach of our digital communication by using digital mediums such as Social Media, Webinars and blogs to educate and promote our country about all we have to offer to international and local stakeholders alike. The newly appointed committee headed by President SLAITO Youth Maxime Wickramasinghe, Mandrinee Nanayakkara, Thilochana Karandawala, Aman Farook, Chantelle Ferdinands, Chathura Fernando, George Paul, Prabodini Bandara and Dinooshi Kariyawasan.
