Workshop for the Leaders of Change School Conference

Sometimes referred to as eco-tourism, sustainable travel, ethical travel or responsible travel, students will learn about the impacts of tourism and how we can travel the world minimising our footprint and valuing local knowledge and cultural traditions of the destinations we travel to.
