We've all seen the headlines and horror stories about overtourism and the impact that mass-scale travel has had on our planet.
COVID19 has shown us that a shift towards a more sustainable way of travel is not only possible, it's inevitable. In order to continue to enjoy the destinations and adventures that travellers crave, we must change the way that we travel.
Social media influencers, bloggers, and content creators can play a huge role in helping to accelerate this shift towards a more sustainable and just travel industry.
Whether you're an established blogger with millions of followers, or an amateur photographer sharing Instagram posts for friends, you have the ability to impact traveller decisions for positive impact.
This presentation will offer recommendations and tips that anyone with an online platform can employ to help accelerate the transition to a more sustainable travel industry.
