Tourism accounts for one in every 10 jobs on the planet. Before the COVID-19 outbreak, there were 45 tourist arrivals worldwide every second. Is this high number possible without major negative consequences for people and the planet… and vice versa?
To learn how to balance the economic and ecological consequences of tourism, we interview Asmaa Kherrati, co-founder of Enjoy Agriculture, a Senegalese startup that promotes agritourism on the African continent, and Julio Andrés Rozo Grisales, founder of Amazonía Emprende, a sustainable tourism provider and sustainable business incubator. Can sustainable tourism be the solution?
