"For a world in which curiosity is stronger than prejudice."
"Travelling has the power to build bridges, not walls."
"Xenophobia has no place in our hearts."
While thousands of German citizens are taking to the streets against hatred and xenophobia these days, the German Travel Association (DRV) is collecting these and many other statements to send a signal against marginalisation as the voice of the travel industry. The FTI GROUP fully supports the campaign under the hashtag #Reisenverbindet.
Karl Markgraf, CEO of the FTI GROUP, says: "A holiday is more than just sightseeing, beaches and cocktails. We travel as ambassadors and explorers, overcoming boundaries and breaking down reservations, broadening our own horizons and also creating new perspectives for our hosts. #Reisenverbindet means Travelling connects and promotes: Appreciation and respect within boundless diversity, cultural understanding and integration. This is the DNA of tourism."
