World Expeditions has launched the Thoughtful Traveller Guide, designed to help individuals cut through what can be confusing messages about ethical travel.
“The Thoughtful Traveller” explains how travellers can play their part in changing the world for the better, and is the newest edition of the company’s award-winning Responsible Travel Guidebook, which was first published in 2000.
“Travellers want to know they’re travelling sustainably and responsibly when they travel with us – and they want to know what they can do at an individual level,” said World Expeditions’ Responsible Travel Manager, Donna Lawrence.
“Responsible Travel sits at the core of our ethos and we work hard to incorporate its principles in all aspects of operations.
“As well as collaborating with leading organisations in the Responsible Travel space, we believe we have a responsibility to educate our travellers, our trade partners and the wider travelling community about the concepts of Responsible Travel and the new guide is a great way to do that.”
“The booklet inspires people to become stewards for travelling sustainably and responsibly with specific actions listed under headings like: arm yourself with knowledge; protect the vulnerable; support the local economy and respect culture and tradition.”
World Expeditions partners with expert organisations including ReThink Orphanages, 10 Pieces, South Pole, Leave No Trace, World Animal Protection and the International Institute of Peace through Tourism on the formulation of its industry leading responsible travel practices and policies.
