Skal International joins the Earth Day movement worldwide with a call to its members and industry in general.
April is a special month for SKAL. It’s a month dedicated to celebrate planet Earth and Skal. Now is the time to start planning activities to promote these two important dates. Skal encourages all Skalleagues and organizations around the world to take actions to keep the Earth and Skal healthy.
April 22 is Earth Day.
The official theme for 2023 is “INVEST IN OUR PLANET.” Skal international is inviting all its members to join the billions of people in more than 193 countries who will be mobilizing and advocating to protect the planet’s beautiful resources. Skal encourages everyone to bring the Sustainable Skal spirit alive and host as many activities as possible to promote awareness.
The movement is suggested to start on April 22 (World Earth Day) and conclude on April 28 (World Skal Day). Once a Skal club has successfully held an activity, this may be shared on social media using hashtags: #SkalSustainS #WorldEarthDay #WorldSkalDay. Skal invites all to share their activities.
Skal International began in 1932 with the founding of the first Club of Paris, promoted by the friendship arising between a group of Parisian Travel Agents who were invited by several transport companies to the presentation of a new aircraft destined for the Amsterdam-Copenhagen-Malmo flight.
Motivated by their experience and the good international friendships that emerged in these trips, a large group of professionals led by Jules Mohr, Florimond Volckaert, Hugo Krafft, Pierre Soulié, and Georges Ithier, founded the Skal Club in Paris on December 16, 1932.
In 1934, Skal International was founded as the only professional organization promoting global tourism and friendship, uniting all sectors of the tourism industry.
Its more than 12,802 members, entailing of industry’s managers and executives, meet at local, national, regional, and international levels to do business among friends throughout more than 309 Skal clubs along 84 countries.
The vision and mission of Skal is to be a trusted voice in travel and tourism through leadership, professionalism, and friendship; to work together to achieve the organization’s vision, maximize networking opportunities, and support a responsible tourism industry.
