This virtual event is a first of its kind, uniting climate conscious businesses and travelers for modern travel inspiration, learning and connection. We’re featuring and sharing information about travel that is good for the world and creating the core community that will power this sector into the future.
Did you ever consider how your travel choices could help our climate? Did you ever consider how the way you run your travel business could help our climate?
If so, you should join us.
Many of us know that travel is a conduit for so much good – it can provide an economic argument for conservation, it celebrates and helps preserve local cultures, it awakens in us our connection to this earth and each other. And yet, the very act of traveling – getting in that car, plane, ship – can undermine all the good we’re doing, because of the associated carbon dioxide emissions. Travel accounts for at least eight percent of global emissions and while everyone focuses on transport, recognizing that the choices we make with respect to accommodations, food choices and shopping we make along the way is vital. We know we’re not alone in thinking about this: a recent study of 10,000 consumers and professionals from 26 countries found that the number of people who said they were doing everything possible to minimise their carbon footprint increased from 63% to 69% over the past year.
Travel is fun, and we believe that being climate clever doesn’t have to mean absorbing encyclopedic amounts of data or turning your holiday planning into homework. This is not an event where you’ll find endless experts droning on about global warming. This is an event where you’ll hear about climate + travel solutions, meet inspired fellow travelers and companies, and have fun. We’re welcoming travelers and travel companies to join us in sharing the very latest in climate clever travel.
If you’re a traveler, join us to learn how to make the best decisions for climate when you’re planning your trips, and get a fast track connection to amazing companies who have sustainability in their DNA; companies you can be proud of traveling with whether it’s on an international escapade or a local weekend away.
If you’re a business, this event is the place to be recognized for your commitment to sustainability and climate action, as well as gain future-focused strategies for managing your carbon emissions. Businesses pay $49 to promote their services to climate conscious travelers and gain access to trade-only content. Companies who are part of the Tomorrow’s Air collective actively removing carbon dioxide via direct air capture and permanently storing it, sign the Tourism Declares A Climate Emergency and/or Climate Action Leaders in Travel Pledge receive special recognition.
