Workshop: Building a Culture of Inclusion in Adventure Travel

What does it really take to partner across differences in a sustainable and meaningful way? This session will explore — at both the head and the heart level — the call to action for all of us to work well across the divides of ethnicity, gender, race, class, sexual orientation, age, and other areas of difference with grace and effectiveness.

Join us for this interactive workshop and get inspired to get off the sidelines and use your own journey to model and support complex change and encourage others to make a difference. The intent of this session is to be a place for safe and meaningful dialogues, where everyone realizes their interest in being full partners in change efforts.

You’ll come away from this workshop with a better understanding of the vision for more inclusive cultures. You’ll build awareness and skill at working competently across differences in your teams and business areas. And you’ll leave ready to take personal action to make a difference in your daily interactions and partnerships. Specifically, you will:

  • Recognize unconscious bias in yourself and others.
  • Commit to maximizing talent through inclusion.
  • Build skills to more competently partner and lead across differences.

Industry Game Changer: Measuring Adventure's Economic Impact

While adventure travel is often heralded as a driver of rural economic growth, adventure industry champions generally suffer for a lack of quantitative data when trying to win strategic support from political partners and funders. So if your work involves justifying the strategic priority of adventure tourism at the regional or national level, you won’t want to miss this practical session on measuring adventure tourism’s economic impact.

Join Edmund Morris, strategic advisor of USAID Jordan’s Local Enterprise Support Project (LENS), as he reveals a mathematical model that can be used by countries around the world to show the economic value of adventure tourism. This model, applied successfully by USAID and based on input-output tables readily available for most countries, offers a credible approach to justifying adventure industry investment. Morris will share details about how this model was developed and how it could be extended for use around the world. He’ll also provide case study information about Jordan and what the model revealed about the economic sectors driving the most growth in rural areas.

Balancing Business and Conservation in National Parks and Protected Areas

Moderator

Cameron Wood

Manager of Business Development, Global Projects, Travel Alberta
 

From the famous Inca ruins of Peru’s Machu Picchu Historical Sanctuary to the magnificent wildlife of South Africa’s Kruger National Park and the biodiversity of Australia’s Great Barrier Reef Marine Park — the planet’s national parks and protected spaces are attracting visitors at an unprecedented scale. As travel providers and destination representatives, the questions is: How can we showcase national treasures like these while supporting quality of place and promoting local conservation efforts?

In this session, you’ll explore the adventure industry’s dual mission to help support conservation goals for our world’s precious places and deliver exceptional experiences for guests and visitors. Experts from around the world will share how they’ve tackled these sometimes conflicting priorities and will weigh in on the challenges we face, presenting real-time and long-term actions the adventure travel industry can take.
