Projects

Over the past 18 years we have created and run practical, sustainable tourism projects in 27 countries around the world. Our ‘on the ground’ experience and ability to bring the many different tourism stakeholders together to solve complex challenges are two of the reasons that destinations and tour operators come to us for help.

We work with destination communities, local and national governments, and tourism businesses to ensure tourism has a positive impact on the destination.
