There are innumerable forces, both man-made and natural, that can have a negative impact on our planet and our communities.
Nearly every process on the planet has an impact and whether it is negative or positive depends on a great number of factors. From deforestation, irresponsible fishing practices, and manufacturing, to urban development, farming, and tourism, our planet and its people are constantly facing seemingly-insurmountable challenges when it comes to protecting and preserving the earth, its species, and our cultures. We are, however, optimistic and believe that by harnessing a power that is greater than one, we can and will change course.
By empowering yourself to become a more responsible citizen and traveller, you can actively reverse the negative effects not only of tourism but of many man-made activities. By becoming a positive agent of change and supporting socially, culturally, and environmentally sustainable practices and destinations, all of us will benefit. Get involved, for the sake of our ecosystems, cultures, our communities. We can all make a difference. In The Long Run, you’ll be glad you did.
