It is important to rethink the model that has been generated so far, taking into account the social and environmental impact of the pandemic.
Tourism and its entire value chain is one of the economic sectors most affected by the global emergency that has emerged in recent months. For this reason, at this moment of reflection, it is important to rethink the model that has been generated so far, taking into account the social and environmental impact of the pandemic.
It is time to define what type of tourist or traveller we want in our communities. A passive traveller or tourist is someone who expects to be attended without having any notion about what is happening around them, the impact that their trip generates or knowing something about the place they are visiting; a conscious traveller cares that their money is invested in a sustainable trip with the least impact and generating value and support for the communities. An active traveller is someone who, in addition to choosing a sustainable trip, wants to support the projects and programs of the communities, take action and volunteer, join the local culture, support a campaign or project and truly immerse themselves during their stay, being aware that as a human being you can generate significant change not only with the money you invest in the trip, but also with your knowledge, skills and your desire to help.
Conservation travel integrates all these criteria that define a new traveller who seeks well-being not only for themselves and their family and friends, but also for the people and places they visit. This type of traveller is the one that can generate significant changes in the way of seeing and approaching a tourist trip. His experience can be so enriching that it can change the beliefs of both the traveller and those around him.
The conservation of natural wealth is a job for all human beings, so travellers are a great source of support to preserve and help communities living in places of great biodiversity. Being a conscious and regenerative traveller is one of the opportunities that human beings have to generate the changes that all humanity and the planet need to preserve life on planet Earth.
