What we do

Climate change and inequity are the biggest challenges facing our world and the future of the global tourism industry.

We support tourism organisations to accelerate change towards a resilient tourism model that puts resident communities at its centre.  We challenge the status quo and ask the hard questions, redefining success and enabling tourism organisations to benefit from the solutions that are already out there.

If you manage tourism in a destination, or are part of a tourism business that wants to improve your impact on destinations, we can support you to:

  • Understand how you can be part of the solution.
  • Ensure you and your team are ready to take action on climate change and build resilience.
  • Generate increased benefits from tourism for local residents and businesses.
  • Gain the knowledge and tools to implement place-centred initiatives.

No matter where you are on the journey towards greener, fairer tourism, we can help.

    We can support you with tools and advice, empowering you to make informed decisions that benefit visitors and locals alike.
