CISTM17 - Adventurous Spirits: Perspectives on the Young Adult Traveller
Young adult travellers are often first-time or inexperienced travellers who may be unaware of potential health and safety risks they may encounter.

• Describe the travel patterns of young adult travellers and approach to preparing young adult travellers for international travel.
• Understand various scenarios involving the arrest, detention, and repatriation of young adult travellers.
• Reflect on examples of irresponsible travel and promoting responsible travel in the young adult population.
