WYSE Travel Confederation, and the organisations which merged to form WYSE, have been rallying for youth travel for decades, forging opportunities for young people to travel and learn; for youth travel to be recognized as a critical instrument in cultural understanding and world peace and as a bedrock of tourism. We are here to fight on your behalf and to speak with one voice to governments and international bodies. We do this by investing in research, coordinating with our members and using our strength in numbers. Get involved and help us to help you.

David Chapman
