The Travel Foundation
The Travel Foundation is an independent charity that works with tourism companies and destination authorities to unlock the positive potential of tourism in destinations, creating better places to live, work and visit.
They seek partners who share their vision and actively want to make a contribution towards changing tourism. Their partners include:
• -Destination governments
• -Tourism businesses in destinations and from source markets
• -Tourism organisations, both national and international
• -Academic institutions and non-government organisations
They make a commitment to a small number of key destinations and work with stakeholders to understand the impacts of tourism. Their groundbreaking research report into the impacts of tourism in Cyprus can be downloaded at www.thetravelfoundation.org.uk/impact
This tailored approach involves bringing key stakeholders together using their excellent industry links. They develop sustainable tourism projects that show proven results and can be scaled up to be 'business as usual' for a destination or a tour operator.
They work in partnership with businesses and governments so that tourism brings greater benefits for people and the environment. Their vision is for:
-Better management of the environment through tourism
-Secure, resilient and diverse livelihoods through tourism
-Preservation of a destination’s cultural and heritage assets through tourismSee more
