In the summer of 2016, I joined with Wild Asia to produce a series of videos showcasing responsible, sustainable tourism in practice. We filmed at El Nido Resorts in the Philippines and for The Soneva Group in the Maldives; with Friends International and PEPY Empowering Youth in Cambodia and for Andaman Discoveries in Thailand. In addition, I had a chance to rework and re-edit a new video for CBT Vietnam.
Six of the videos were released earlier in the month at ITB Asia 2016 in Singapore. For background between 2006 – 2016, Wild Asia engaged with hundreds of inspirational tourism businesses, initiatives, and practitioners through their annual Responsible Tourism Awards. In 2016, to celebrate the 10th edition, Wild Asia reconnected with past Awardees and produced a series of videos and new report on replicable best practices with the tourism industry.
Thanks to all the recipients for hosting us. It was a really eye-opening project to be a part of and we met a lot of wonderful people in the process.
