Virtual Roundtable: Sustainable Travel in a Post-pandemic World

In our third webinar, we look at both the challenges and opportunities presented by the coronavirus crisis for sustainable tourism in Southeast Asia.

Five travel industry experts weigh in on whether or not the Covid-19 pandemic represents a turning point with growing numbers of people demanding more responsible travel, and if the aftermath will simply be a return to business as usual. As national borders across Southeast Asia remain shut to foreign visitors, we address immediate concerns on the ground, particularly the immense pressure now facing tourism-funded wildlife protection programs. Also touched on in this discussion are strategies that hospitality operators are using in the initial recovery phase and the importance of pursuing both a top-down and bottom-up approach in sustainability plans—ensuring a future that will benefit not just businesses but also the environment and local communities.
