What is Responsible Tourism
Responsible tourism is an approach to the management of tourism aimed at maximising benefits (economic, social and environmental) and minimizing costs to destinations. Simply put, Responsible Tourism is a tourism that "creates better places for people to live in, and better places to visit", a phrase coined in Cape Town in 2002 and now widely used around the world. www.responsiblecapetown.co.za
Learn to Earn fully supports the concept of responsible tourism and the impact that it can have on a community.
