Mindful Tourism, what it means in 2021 ?

Mindful tourism must integrate 3 aspects :

  • inner openness,

  • sharing,

  • respect for the world that hosts us. redefines its solidarity commitments with an ever more advanced and targeted positioning, as much from the angle of Solidarity Tourism as from the angle of Eco-Conscious Tourism.

Solidarity Tourism

2.5% is paid back in cash or in goods, from hand to hand, without intermediaries, to the orphans of Nepal (of which there are nearly 1 million!!!) and to the elderly who do not receive a retirement pension, so as not to lose an average of 30% of "administrative management costs inherent to humanitarian associations" and so that the donation goes entirely to those who need it.

Eco-conscious tourism

it is now unconscious and selfish to travel as before! We cannot deny our CO2 footprint when we travel. From now on, for each trip, we add to the total amount, the purchase of planted trees in order to participate in the creation of carbon sinks and thus enter into a CO2 compensation process in relation to the distance travelled. Thus, for a flight to Nepal, each traveller will participate in the planting of 22 trees.
