Peace Park dedicated as tourism ministers meet in Colombia – Brazil and Seychelles Minister joins UNWTO Secretary General at tree planting

Peace Park dedicated as tourism ministers meet in Colombia – Brazil and Seychelles Minister joins UNWTO Secretary General at tree planting (Forimmediaterelease.net) The International Institute for Peace through Tourism (IIPT) used the 21st UNWTO General Assembly taking place in Colombia to dedicate a Peace Park at the University Gardens of Medellin. The continued drive by Louis D'Amore, the IIPT Founder and President, continues to position peace as the needed catalyst for a better world, and he was surrounded for this latest exercise by Taleb Rifai, the Secretary General of the UNWTO (United Nations World tourism Organization); Minister Sandra Howard Taylor, the Vice Minister of Tourism of Brazil; and Minister Alain St.Ange, the Seychelles Minister responsible for Tourism and Culture.

After a blessing by Archbishop Ricardo Tobon Restrepo of Medellin, Mr. Taleb Rifai, the Secretary General of the UNWTO; Minister Sandra Howard Taylor, the Brazilian Vice Minister for Tourism; Minister Alain St.Ange, the Seychelles Minister responsible for Tourism and Culture; and Mr. Rafael Millan, the Executive Committee Member of Skal International were invited by Geoffrey Lipman, the President of the International Coalition of Tourism Partners (ICTP) to address the event before Dr. Louis D'Amore delivered his own address.

It was Minister Alain St.Ange of the Seychelles who asked everyone during his address to use this opportunity at the inauguration of a Peace Park in Medellin, Colombia, to give each other a sign of peace as is today common practice at the Roman Catholic churches.

Following the official addresses, Taleb Rifai, Minister Sandra Howard Taylor, Minister Alain St.Ange, Archbishop Ricardo Antontonio Tobon Restrepo, Rafael Millan, and Sandra Echeverry Duque from the Secretariat of Tourism at the University of Medellin joined Dr. Louis D'Amore to plant trees in the newly-dedicated Peace Park.

Minister St.Ange of the Seychelles said that he found the event a moving one, especially as the world is today more in need than ever before to see the world embrace the culture of peace.
