What if every trip you took helped to improve our world, regardless of the destination or type of travel? That idea is what inspired our guest today, Kelley Louise, to found Impact Travel Alliance (ITA), an organization working to educate and inspire people to travel in a way that empowers local communities and protects our planet.
ITA initiatives are based on education and advocacy around sustainable tourism – travel that has a positive impact on a destination’s environment, economy and culture. Sustainable tourism, while often viewed as a niche within the industry, can be applied to any type of travel. By working to incorporate sustainability into all types of travel experiences, we have the potential to change our world for the better.
Before diving in to all things sustainable travel with Kelley, Bonnie and Madeleine discuss how COVID quarantine has impacted their wellness routines, and what self-care looks like in the face of daunting global challenges like climate change.
