We in the Travel Industry should care

Iceland Forever congratulates Malala Yousafzai and Kailash Satyarthi, who were awarded the Nobel Peace Prize this year for their struggle against suppression of young people and children and their right for education.

The Travel Industry depends on peace and human rights. If people cannot read or write they are depended on others to enlighten them about what is going on in the world, politics etc. and not knowing the truth can keep people down and allow dictators in any form to rule and do what they pleases. In worst cases, lead people and nations into war.

The Nobel Peace Prize is a great reminder for us all to keep fighting for human rights and peace; everybody should have the right to go after their dreams. We in the West take literacy for granted, a dream of a young girl or a boy might be to learn how to read and write, it also might be a longing to travel and see the World. We in the travel industry should care and support, sometimes we only look at our neighbourhood, but we can read, we’ve been into schools so we know the history and the history tells us that we should not take peace for granted.

Malala Yousafzai, Kailash Satyarthi and all you anonymous peace and human rights fighters out there, keep fighting; you are great examples for us all.
