Jeff Greenwald, Executive Director, Ethical Traveler
Malia Everette, Founder, Altruvistas
We’re big fans of the emphasis that Ethical Traveler places on responsible tourism.
One of the best things mindful travelers can do is spend their tourist dollars in countries that uphold core values like human rights, civil society and environmental protection. Every December, Bay Area-based Ethical Traveler (a project of the Earth Island Institute) lists “The World’s Best Ethical Destinations.” The independent non-profit honors 10 countries – all in the developing world – that are protecting their environments and promoting a socially just, sustainable tourism economy. Join the architects of this list, and representatives from the award-winning countries, for a discussion about which countries made the 2015 list and why.
