We visited the Andean school which was built by World Expeditions and presented the children with books, pens, pencils etc which some of us had brought from Australia. The extra weight was worthwhile when we saw the expressions on the children’s faces. I could never imagine children in Australia smiling so broadly at being given an exercise book and pen!
Travel that makes the world a better place
The natural environments that we travel through are fragile; the cultures and traditions precious, and often the communities we pass through are reliant on tourism. It is our responsibility as visitors to minimize the impact of our presence, protect what is precious and where we can leave a positive impact.
Creating genuine sustainable adventure itineraries often translates to real costs, which means that a raft of responsible tourism practises underpins our prices. By integrating these practices into our itineraries we enable our travellers to be ‘Responsible Travellers’.
Conserving environments and cultures takes a united front, which is why we produce our Responsible Travel Guidebook. It’s a reference tool for our travel industry partners, employees and travellers, outlining our company wide initiatives, and it gives guidance to travellers about how to be ‘responsible travellers’.
