The current situation in MENA relates well to this group:

Travel warnings, evacuation of tourists, Jordan sometime back (when the turmoil in other states started) praising itself in a travel magazine as a haven of stability - but also tourists as observers, semi-professional reporters and perhaps even human shields.

Share your thoughts, please!

Dear Abdoulie.

I post your message here, so that it is accessible for a wider audience, not only to group members.


A message from Abdoulie Jeng to all members of Tourism and Peace on Peace and Collaborative Development Network!

For every two years the Republic of The Gambia celebrates the "ROOTS FESTIVAL, HOMECOMING" purposely to encourage black Americans and other people with Africans with Gambian parents living in the diaspora to show their homage by touring the country, visiting cultural heritage sites, attend symposiums, musical concerts and many more, all of which has the aim to build bridges between people with the mainland.
This international event is attended by many dignitaries, politicians, cultural organizations and musicians around the world, and the sector that gains the most economic benefits from the event is the tourism industry of the country.
Yesterday was the 10th Edition of the ROOTS Festival inaugurated by the president of the republic, DR, Professor, Yahya A.A.A.Jammeh. Pictures from the festival will be sent later to mypage. You are welcome.

I am currently working on a project to create a global peace monument that ever country, and an entire generation of the worlds children can contribute to. We are currently organising a global vote with 1 school from every country participating, to see where in the world they think it should be built.We hope it will get them looking at other nations on the earth and the peace/environmental/ economic issues they are facing. We think that the tourism revenue it would generate would be better going to a country whose economy needs it.Its a very idealistic project but if any one has any thoughts we would appreciate the input.
