Global Citizenship: Sustainability

“We cannot hope to create a sustainable culture with any but sustainable souls.”                                  ― Derrick Jensen

Sustainable Travel is the twin sister of responsible tourism.  Both are focused on the impact that tourism has on local communities, but sustainable tourism is also concerned with conservation and tourism development’s environmental impact.
