How do we get to a sustainable and long-term model in an industry driven by high volume and low margins?
Tourism is one of the world’s largest industries and provides jobs to over 230 million people, accounting simultaneously for more than 10% of the world GDP. It also has a downside. Large parts of the revenues do not always stay in the destination economy, local cultures are pushed aside, nature and wildlife is abused and the environment suffers degradation.
Do we perhaps need to completely shift perspective? Fair Travel’s work is not based on theories gathered from books; nor do we hide behind fancy words or claim that we know everything. We base everything on our own experiences mixed with our core values of respect and empathy.
KISS – Keep it simple stupid
When educating on Responsible Tourism we use a simple approach, presenting the principles in a manner that all will understand. Keeping it simple is key to our success. After attending our lectures we guarantee that each individual will have gained a sound knowledge in the subject.
We also arrange information sessions for travel businesses, destinations and private tourists. We have several years of experience in the field and have delivered enough sessions over the years to know what we’re talking about. We stand by our word and will convey it in a credible and easy way.
