With the goal of creating a safe, welcoming world for all, we rally for pro-travel policies and support programs that allow people to experience and understand other cultures. Through nonprofit partnerships, creating and implementing training, advocacy and supplier accountability, we are committed to uphold and respect human rights.
Travel is one of the most powerful tools for promoting peace and cultural understanding. With a global presence, it is imperative that we truly understand, respect and welcome all. Through partnerships, training and education, we work to elevate travel as a catalyst for peace and cultural understanding — ensuring our hotels are a place of inclusion and comfort for all people.
Marriott’s support helped to enable eight youth-led organizations, each of which is a Peacebuilding Fund recipient, to launch projects, which are receiving guidance and mentorship to increase their effectiveness and impact. Initiatives include a reconciliation process between youth from different political and religious groups and promotion of youth participation in the promotion of peace in the Middle East and North Africa.
