About the event
Join One Young World and the Rwandan High Commission in London for a critical conversation focused on investing in conservation, creating economic opportunity, and the responsibility of travellers to consider the impact of their journeys.
The vast impact of tourism on our natural environment offers a challenge and an opportunity. Countries globally are reckoning with the damage the industry can cause, particularly with the travel boom in recent decades. COVID-19 has brought tourism to its knees but has also presented a chance to reimagine what a sustainable, responsible industry looks like for governments, businesses, and individuals alike.
Rwanda received Lonely Planet’s Best in Travel 2021 ‘Wildlife Program’ Award and has been commended for leading in the sustainable and responsible tourism field, perhaps most notably through the conservation success story of the endangered mountain gorilla and their habitat.
