03. ABOUT THE GLOBAL COLLECTIVE FOR TRAVEL
As a Collective, they are united in the commitment to being a platform for the local operators to challenge the status quo set by the big players, so that all who love to travel have better choices.
Those who provide valuable services along the entire supply chain can earn a dignified living, all the while preserving and promoting culture and the environment.
They recognise that social inequity and problems associated with mass tourism are very real daily issues impacting all of us. For them, being responsible and sustainable is not just a buzzword, but a call to action.
This is not just the metaphorical “our home” for most people; they actually live in these places, eat these foods and breathe these air.
