TALKS ON INCLUSIVE TOURIST CULTURE AND ENVIRONMENTAL SUSTAINABILITY

In its first post-pandemic phase, an impact has been made in over 250 children from different elementary schools. These talks teach the history of the tourist place they inhabit, the importance of tourist activity, what tourist culture is and how it becomes inclusive, in addition to the positive impact of caring for the cultural heritage that Cancun and Puerto Juarez have.

For about a week different cultural activities, visits, and conferences were held in the city. The GDMT provided various support for the realization of the event such as: facemasks with the official logo of DEAF Cancun and box lunches on the opening day.
