Why Tackling Gender Inequality is Key to Solving the Climate Crisis
The empowerment of women across our globe is not only vital to achieving the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals for 2030, but is also one of the most promising means to reverse climate change. Rights-based solutions will be as critical to our planet’s future as the transition to renewable energy or the reduction of global food waste—ensuring universal access to education, and family planning for women and girls. Join our webinar to explore why climate change disproportionately affects women and how addressing gender equality through travel can be a leading solution to help stop global warming.

This webinar explores the “Regenerative Travel Principles for Hospitality White Paper” with Anna Pollock of Conscious Travel (a leading proponent of regenerative tourism), and Bill Reed of Regenesis Group (a leading firm in regenerative design). We discuss our white paper’s practical framework for moving Regenerative Travel from buzzword to paradigm shift and deep dive into case studies from African Bush Camp and Blue Apple Beach whose founders share how tourism can act as a transformative change agent, especially as we move from the current threat of the COVID-19 pandemic to the next imminent threat of climate change.

Creating living ecosystems with regenerative agritourism to combat climate change
About one-third of the world’s topsoil is already acutely degraded, and the United Nations estimates a complete degradation within 60 years if current practices continue. Going “beyond sustainable,” regenerative agricultural methodologies seek to add to the soil through a self-nourishing ecological system that benefits the environment in the process. Learn from leading experts including Diana Martin (Communications Director at Rodale Institute), Katharine Millonzi (Director at Millonzi Consulting), Ben Falk (Founder of Whole Systems Design) and Tom Morphew (Founder of Full Circle Farms Sussex) on how we can create a more resilient future through travel and agritourism.
