“Rebuilding tourism in a safe, equitable, climate-friendly way” - United Nations
The UN reports that “tourism employs one in every ten people on Earth. Because of the pandemic, 100-120 million direct tourism jobs are at risk.” Tourism has been severely affected by the pandemic response and many are wondering what the long term effects will be post-COVID. This is not just an international problem but a local one. Tourism allows people to work in their home country and teach others of local culture. Learning about others’ cultures and seeing these magnificent places in person is life changing and vital ingredients to global cooperation.
Post-COVID we have the opportunity to significantly change our habits. The ‘new normal’ shouldn’t be the ‘old normal’. Traveling again should be safe, sustainable, and fun! Companies that support this model should have a platform, one we hope to create! Our site, the tour companies, and the travel industry wouldn’t be here without the tourists. So, continue to travel, explore, relax, and learn how you can make a positive impact.
