Christine Winebrenner Irick, Founder of Lotus Sojourns and host of Soul of Travel interview series speaks with Anne De Jong, Co-founder of Good Tourism Institute.

In this conversation, we talk about some of the language used in the tourism industry related to sustainable tourism, such as responsible tourism, eco-tourism, green, and good. We talk about what this really means to a traveler and a tour operator and how this language and confusion may hold some back from committing to making better choices.

We also talk about examples of actions you can take in your businesses to use tourism for good and why it is important to share your mission and vision with your clients. We also focus on the importance of community involvement in destinations you travel to in order to have a more positive impact.

Anne is a passionate change maker and fascinated by the tourism industry. Wanting to contribute to a future-proof tourism industry, she supports tour operators and destinations to become more resilient and sustainable. Her main focus lies in working towards a sustainable and profitable business while making a positive impact on local communities and the environment. She emphasizes on making sustainability easier, more accessible, and attractive.
