Wayaj Webinar - Responsible Travel Makers
This webinar was recorded on November 28, 2020
On Saturday 28th November hoteliers are invited to meet the owners of two eco adventure resorts: Renée H. Kimball, Owner/Operator of Tranquilo Bay Eco Lodge in Panama and Dr Marc van Loo, CEO of LooLa Eco Adventure in Indonesia. For both resorts eco-tourism has been the foundation of their business plan from the outset.
This month's edition of Responsible Tourism will show how ecotourism offers guests a chance to 'unplug' and create once-in-a-lifetime memories. Whether it's meeting a troop of capuchin monkeys at Tranquilo Bay or making bags and ornaments from plastic collected during a beach clean up at LooLa.
At Tranquilo Bay sustainability is woven into all aspects of life, education and service. Renee Kimball will share their formula for running an ecotourism resort, covering five key areas: Conservation, Guest experience, Community tourism, Education and Stewardship.
Marc van der Loo will explain how LooLa is a successful example that ecotourism really works: for the business, for the guests and for the local community. Guests are actively involved in creating better lives for the people who live in the Bintan area. Marc will also talk about his newly launched eco virtual tours, which allow guests who cannot travel to still be involved in life-changing experiences.
Joining Renée and Marc will be Wayaj's sustainability specialists, Logan Cohen and Nikki Mattei, who will take part in the discussion after the two hotels have been presented and will also invite questions from the audience.
This month's episode of "Responsible Travel Makers" airs on November 28th 2020 at 9.00 am EDT /3.00 pm CET/10.00 pm SGT
