Welcome to the fifth episode in the Spring Season of Good Will Hunters, which asks, Can Australia be a Sustainability Superpower?
WWF is proud to be collaborating with Good Will Hunters on this series, in the lead up to COP26, the UN Climate Change Conference in Glasgow from 31 October to 12 November. You can join the conversation via @goodwillpod or #RegenerateAustralia.
In our fifth episode of the series, we speak to James Thornton, CEO of the worlds largest certified travel BCorp, Intrepid Group, and Alice Ruhweza, Regional Director of WWF Africa. We discuss the revival of the tourism industry, following nearly two years of international lockdowns, and how the industry can become more sustainable as travellers return. We discuss the benefits of tourism to local communities, as well as the perils of having an influx of international travellers hopping on long-haul flights and descending on cities and towns – how can we do better? How can we make tourism a force for good, for people and the planet?
Enjoy the episode,
