Whether domestic or international, travel is an opportunity for growth, an opportunity to promote and to enjoy that which symbolises and identifies a region or place, and an opportunity to learn and appreciate origins, depth of character, history and genuine articles.

Responsible travel is not concerned with branding; advertising; imported goods, materials or services; but with what is native, local and beneficial towards preserving the land, the environment, and the cultural identity of indigenous communities.

Educated travellers are an extremely powerful force in helping to shape economies, environments and societies.
