What does it mean to be a responsible traveler and tour operator? And what can we do to encourage that travel enhances the experience and quality of life of both the travelers and the locals, rather than takes away from our natural and human resources?
Join us on April 12, 6-9PM at Acceler8, a coworking space at 111 Paseo de Roxas, Legaspi Village, Makati, as we talk about different ways you can travel more mindfully, and showcase destinations / operate tours or accommodations in a more responsible way in partnership with Forest Foundation of the Philippines.
Whether you’re just getting started on exploring the world more conscientiously, or have years of experience in guiding travelers more judiciously, we’d love for you to join us!
Some of our featured guests will include entrepreneurs and advocates that travel and/or guide travelers with principles of conservation, environmentalism, and social inclusion:
A panel moderated by MUNI will feature a mix of guests including:
Ann Dumaliang, Project Officer of Masungi Georeserve, a conservation area and a rustic rock garden tucked in the rainforests of Rizal; Nat Geo Young Explorer
Glenn Mallari, U.P. Mountaineers Batch 2010, former Vice President for External Affairs of U.P Mountaineers in 2012, and graduate of BS Tourism from UP Asian Institute of Tourism
We’ll also be featuring a package-free pop-up with a handful of natural, plastic-free and eco-friendly products and travel companions! 🙂
