  • Climate Change and Youth Travel industry guide – Oct. 2007
    Youth travellers care about the environment. They are looking for solutions that will help them balance their passion for travel, with their desire to minimise the environmental impact of their travel.

    The youth travel industry can provide young travellers with solutions to this dilemma.

    As part of WYSE Travel Confederation’s “Climate Change and Youth Travel” Initiative, a series of ready-made tools and templates have been designed to assist specialist youth travel organisations in educating customers and providing solutions. By using these tools, your organisation can make a difference and help young travellers answer the burning “questions of conscience” confronting our industry and our world.

  • New Horizons in Independent Youth and Student Travel
    This unique report, prepared and published in 2004 by ISTC and the Association of Tourism and Leisure Education (ATLAS), was the first international survey of youth and student travellers using primary source data. More than 2300 travellers from eight countries contributed to the study. Frequently quoted in the press and featured worldwide at seminars and tourism events, this report is now widely viewed as the authoritative source of information on youth and student travellers.

    An updated version of this benchmark report will be released in 2007. Based on a larger and more diverse data set than the original study, the 2007 report will provide updated information on young travellers' core characteristics, identify emerging trends, and offer important new insights into the booking behaviour, communication patterns, Internet usage and "unmanaged spend" of young travellers.

  • Study on the Impact of Travel on Values
    This study examines the impact of extended (work and/or study abroad) travel experiences on the attitudes of young travellers. It provides important empirical evidence for the proposition that (extended) travel experiences lead to increased levels of international understanding, tolerance, interpersonal trust and cultural awareness.
