When one travels, it is often an exploration of a place culture or a destination. One wants to know about the food, history and architecture and the stories would end there itself. While one is travelling, there are some who help you organize the trip, arrange for your stay and take you around your chosen destination. Have you ever wondered how these dots get connected to give you a lasting memory of your trip? Have you ever tried to analyse the impact of your trip on issues like natural resources, pollution etc?
Tourism on one hand has become a tool measuring the growth of an economy and on the other hand has given rise to negative aspects that have gone beyond human control. One doesn’t really question how many trees I killed on my road trip while using the poisonous fuel? That is obvious. But it is our responsibility to make sure that our travel is a pure discovery and not a contradictory affair with nature and its resources. Â It is time we take Responsible Tourism in our own hands.
The thought might have crossed a lot of nomads’ minds or it might not have but it is the need of the hour. Responsible Tourism as nascent as it might sound to you, is a definite term that has united hundreds globally to serve their core interests and love for local environment. Travellers all over have associated themselves to contribute and take up initiatives that help the local communities benefit directly and the protect the wealth and diversities of our culture, heritage and habitats.
