    Episode 04: Travelling with Sustainability in Mind

    Episode 04: Travelling with Sustainability in Mind

    In this episode, the notions of ‘green travel’ are explored. With travel and environmental concern on the rise, how can we reconcile the two? How can you lessen your impact, or how can you structure your travel impact so that it has a positive influence on local communities? After all, jet fuel may melt steel, but it can’t melt environmental progress.
    Some highlights of the episode include an analysis of short and long term impacts of tourism, as well as a look at who is succeeding in green tourism. Examples are Alta Floresta, Nautilus Lanzarote, Finolhu Villas, and L’Avenc de Tavartet.
    Your challenge now is to travel with the aim of making a positive impact socially, culturally, economically, and environmentally. Check out the UNESCO Ecotourism Game, too!
