Responsible Tourism has never been as important and relevant as it is today. The challenge is to maintain the fine balance between rewarding holiday experiences and, at the same time empowering local communities to improve quality of life and to conserve their environment so that future generations can also enjoy the same life-changing adventures as we have experienced.
Each one of us has a responsibility towards making such positive economic, social, cultural, and environmental impact. And, we at DoTheDifferent take our responsibility seriously – one that doesn’t end with walking and cycling leaving a lighter carbon footprint!
We believe that the ‘how’ of travel is at the heart of change and we encourage travel that allows you to get in touch with the grass-roots. When we choose accommodations that are family run and encourage you to fill yourself at the local eateries you are becoming part of that channel that infuses back into the local economic cycle empowering those at the bottom of the pyramid to sustain their livelihood. Plus, you are not just supporting the local economy but you are also face to face with the rich and true culture of the destination. And we believe, that is what travel should be about.
Right from our business model, to the choice of our partners all the way to what we promote, Responsible Tourism is at the heart of every business decision. We encourage you to join our revolution by following these 10 simple recommendations.
