Projects

Since 2003, we have created and run sustainable tourism initiatives in 27 countries around the world.

Today, our work is creating a better future for tourism destinations, accelerating change towards a sustainable, fairer tourism model.

The initiatives below are grouped broadly into climate and equity, our two focus areas. However, all of our projects have both environmental sustainability and equity for local communities at their heart, as one cannot be achieved without the other.
