A message from Amanda Ho, Regenerative Travel’s Co-Founder & CEO: Reflecting on the past and embracing the future

Over the past four years, Regenerative Travel has taken the lead in propelling the industry towards a regenerative future. Our initial mission was to facilitate the discovery of environmentally and socially impactful hotels for travelers, however, we have now embarked on a transformative journey, evolving into a thriving association and marketplace. Our primary objective is to unite all crucial stakeholders in the travel industry, including hotels, travel agents, DMCs, and tour operators, under a single umbrella. With unwavering initiative, we have extended our program to cordially welcome all trade partners, fostering inclusivity and empowering regenerative change makers to collectively make a profound impact. Learn more about our membership program.

The Agency of Change Trade Program

Aligned with our mission, we have introduced our new Agency of Change Trade Program, empowering values-aligned agents to promote regenerative travel to their clients and become stewards of change. We are thrilled about the potential to drive business growth and generate heightened interest in our member hotels through our trade program, nurturing valuable relationships between agents and hotels.

Recently, we have made enhancements to our membership program, tailor-made for travel agents. The updated program offers diversified tiering options, allowing trade partners to prioritize what matters most to them: either more individual agent seats or a stronger emphasis on showcasing their unique itineraries, with the required annual spend based on annual turnover.

This flexible approach is designed to cater to the diverse needs of our trade partners. We acknowledge that some may benefit from the capacity to include more travel designers, while others find it advantageous to display a wider range of curated itineraries to attract potential clients.

We firmly believe that this updated membership program will empower our trade partners, elevating their representation within the Regenerative Travel community and amplifying their visibility and impact within the industry.

The Regenerative Travel Summit 2023

We are proud to bring The Regenerative Travel Summit to Wythe Hotel in Brooklyn, New York this year on September 20, 2023 during Climate Week. The Summit is more than just an event; it is a platform to propel the travel industry towards a regenerative future. Together, we will explore innovative ideas, share best practices, and inspire one another to build an industry that creates a positive environmental and social impact. By joining us, you will have the opportunity to connect with like-minded professionals, forge partnerships, and contribute to shaping the future of travel. Become a RT+ Change Maker member to join.

Establishing a New Benchmark and Verification

We have implemented a rigorous vetting process, known as the Regenerative Travel Standard, to ensure that all affiliated suppliers meet our stringent criteria. The purpose of our association and marketplace is to foster collaboration and synergy among these key players, ultimately driving positive change in the industry.

We are developing a specialized “Verification” program exclusively for hotels launching Q3 2024. This comprehensive program entails conducting meticulous, in-person audits of all hotels to guarantee compliance with our standards, requiring all of our hotels to be verified once every three years.

Our First E-Course on Regenerative Tourism

We are excited to be in the final stages of finalizing our first self-guided e-course, “From Principles to Practice: Regenerative Travel in Action”, that will build your practical understanding of the practices and framework behind regenerative development and tourism launching by Q4 2023.

Gain a deep understanding of the difference between regeneration and sustainability, and learn how to work differently to create positive change. This course is designed for hoteliers, travel agents, managers, leaders, business owners, and policymakers who are eager to expand their thinking and embrace the future of regenerative tourism. By the end of this e-course, you will have a solid foundation in regenerative tourism, an appreciation for its transformative potential, and practical tools to apply in your professional endeavors.

Join the Regenerative Travel Movement

We take immense pride in the transformative journey we have undertaken, firmly believing that our new marketplace and association will play an instrumental role in shaping the future of the travel industry. Together, we can redefine the standards and practices in this sector, ensuring a sustainable and regenerative approach that leaves a lasting impact.
