"In order to save our planet, the tourism industry needs to go past sustainably and into regeneration. Tourism companies, governments, hotels and travel agencies need to take responsibility for instituting sustainable practices, educating their guests and enforcing eco-friendly behavior. Although these entities are the ones that hold the power in the consumer's journey, individuals also need to be aware of how their actions can negatively impact the local destinations they travel to."
As part of the SEWF Digital Summit Daniela virtually sat down with Tegan Samija, of Social Shifters, and Showmy Hasan Chowdury of Awareness 360 for a panel entitled: Be Part of the Shift – Young People in Social Enterprise. They talked all things professional development, self awareness, social entrepreneurship, and the urgency of the threats facing our ocean.
