Under the shadow of the global pandemic and climate crisis, tourism is facing unprecedented uncertainty. But in this time of adaptation and resilience comes an extraordinary opportunity to reset and reimagine - returning to business as usual is no longer an option.
Join Debbie Clarke and Josie Major each Wednesday as we set out on a journey to discover what reimagining tourism looks like in NZ, unpack the nuances of sustainable, responsible, eco, community-led and conscious tourism, and move instead towards the mindset shift that is regenerative tourism.
We offer this platform of collective discovery for operators, travellers, and communities to share their stories, and we invite you to join us on this journey.

    Storytelling in a VUCA world - with Alina Siegfried and JoAnna Haugen

    Storytelling in a VUCA world - with Alina Siegfried and JoAnna Haugen

    "We can’t have a different future if we can’t imagine it first” 

    Whether we’re conscious of it or not, how we live, work, play - and travel - is all informed by the stories we tell ourselves, by the narratives we continue to uphold. We are all storytellers, and the stories we tell and how we tell them matter. 

    Join us in this two part episode on storytelling in a VUCA world. Our guest for part one is Alina Siegfried who guides us in exploring a new story for humanity, and new myths and narratives for a different future that we can all create together. 

    In part two, we’re joined by JoAnna Haugen, master storyteller for tourism, who shares how to craft honest, intentional, complicated, and complex stories that help shift our mindset as we adapt to our changing world.

    Introduction: What is tourism’s purpose in a VUCA world?

    Introduction: What is tourism’s purpose in a VUCA world?

    Welcome to Season 2 of GOOD Awaits! One year into their journey to research and explore regenerative tourism practice in Aotearoa New Zealand, Debbie and Josie are thrilled to be continuing these critical conversations. 

    Continuing to unpack the paradigm shift that is required for a regenerative tourism future, this season of GOOD Awaits will go beyond the perceived silo of tourism with a diverse range of guests including story-tellers, students, researchers, and local hosts. Debbie and Josie will explore how these pioneers are creating a new guiding story at individual, local and systemic levels. 

    A critical question that emerged from Season 1 was: what is tourism’s purpose? Season 2 explores this question further by asking: what is tourism’s purpose in a VUCA - volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous - world? How can we adapt and be resilient while using tourism to regenerate our communities and places? What new stories and myths do we need in order to see ourselves as regenerators of our places?

    Journey with Debbie and Josie as they explore these questions and as we work towards an evolving, connected, regenerative tourism future together.

    Season Harvest

    Season Harvest

    In this episode, Debbie and Josie revisit and recap the inspiring conversations with their guests, harvesting a vision for what a regenerative visitor economy could look like in Aotearoa, New Zealand. In this harvest, you'll hear some of our favourite interview fragments from all of our guests, as well as ideas and questions sent in by you, our wonderful listeners.The Harvest is designed to help you digest what we've discussed throughout the season, and as a summary for those who haven't had the time to listen to all 10 episodes.


    All the guests in this season speak to the urgency and imperative of acknowledging the challenges of an uncertain and complex future. We must face this reality if we’re to be resilient in how we reshape our tourism businesses, industry, and communities. Our collective vision is one in which the wellbeing and thrivability of communities is at the heart of tourism’s purpose. We dream of a visitor economy that fosters deep and meaningful encounters between visitors and hosts, and puts purpose and passion at the forefront.


    We hope you find much value and inspiration in this collective vision of a reimagined tourism in Aotearoa, New Zealand. If you’re interested in continuing these conversations we invite you to reach out to us and become part of our growing community.

    Lee-Anne Jago - Purpose, Passion and Community

    Lee-Anne Jago - Purpose, Passion and Community

    In this episode, Debbie and Josie interview Lee-Anne Jago, owner of Waka Abel Tasman. Lee-Anne and her husband Todd offer waka experiences in the Abel Tasman within a cultural framework of Maori tikanga and world view. They place their community at the heart of everything they do in their business and are passionate about uplifting rangatahi (young people) and supporting their community to thrive. 


    Our conversation with Lee-Anne is in many ways a summary of the regenerative tourism principles we’ve discussed in previous episodes; demonstrating how tourism can help communities thrive, create deep and meaningful connections, place purpose and passion at the heart of business, and be more resilient and adaptive in this VUCA world. We hope you find much value and inspiration in this example of regenerative tourism.


    This episode is the final interview for season 1 of the GOOD Awaits podcast. We will be sharing one more episode, an extended reflection with Debbie and Josie to harvest some of the stories and learnings from the podcast. If you would like to contribute to this, please send us your ideas, reflections or questions and we would love to include them in our conversation.

    Mandy Bell - "Educate, Enable, Inspire"

    Mandy Bell - "Educate, Enable, Inspire"

    For Episode 9 Josie and Debbie interviewed Mandy Bell, co-owner of Criffel Station and Chairperson and Programme Director of WAI Wanaka. Mandy brings innovative, nature-based, and whole of community approaches to her work, and spoke with us about the opportunities to look beyond tourism and work across sectors when taking a regenerative approach.


    Mandy is a big picture thinker with ambitious goals for tourism in Aotearoa, but offers practical, actionable examples and ideas in this conversation including models of regenerative practice in action from other sectors and examples of community-driven and nature-based mindset initiatives. 


    This week, our offering is for listeners who have stayed with us throughout  this journey, all the way to Episode 9 of GOOD Awaits. You are a part of this transformative movement, and if you want to talk about how we can continue to drive change, please get in touch with us. We need to work together on this if we're going to create the conditions for a regenerative visitor economy to thrive in Aotearoa.

    Porina McLeod - Thriving in Collaboration

    Porina McLeod - Thriving in Collaboration

    In this episode, Debbie and Josie interview Porina McLeod, owner of Mauao Adventures. Mauao Adventures’ core purpose is to connect people with the moana (ocean), the whenua (land) and tangata whenua (local people). Preserving Māori cultural values is important to Porina and these values are woven through every aspect of her business.


    Porina speaks about her involvement in Te Whānau Tāpoi Māori ō Tauranga Moana, a newly formed Māori tourism collective that demonstrates true collaboration and is an example of living systems principles, bringing diverse individuals together through relationships and structures to form a emergent, thriving collective. 


    Porina’s view of the world, how she operates her business, and Te Whānau Tāpoi Māori ō Tauranga Moana are all examples of living systems thinking and practice. We hope you find much value and inspiration in these examples of regenerative tourism.
