At the heart of our mission for sustainable and transformative tourism, lie the Impact Heroes. These exemplary figures are not just part of our community; they are beacons of inspiration, changing the world one journey at a time.
They are individuals and communities who have shown exceptional commitment to environmental conservation, cultural revitalization, and local economic development. From social entrepreneurs who weave networks of responsible tourism.
The Impact Heroes represent the diversity of actions and passions that make up the fabric of a more conscious and respectful tourism. Through their stories, we want to show that positive change is possible and that we can all be part of it.
