In future issues of The List we’re going to be looking at what’s going on in the travel industry and finding out what measures are being taken to clean up our holidays. We’ll be focusing on a number of countries around the world and asking how ‘green’ they are as holiday destinations. Are their governments and tourist boards supporting moves to protect their resources, and are they working to educate locals and visitors alike about the significance of tourism to our way of life? We‘ll also be grilling a few tour operators and asking them to account for their actions, since they are the ones who provide the direct contact between visitors and the places they visit. DO they Offer their clients any information about how to behave at destinations; do they support any environmental organisations. and can they honestly say that the i a now.
holidays they offer are just as good for the local people as they are for themselves?

The more information we can gather on this subject. the better chance we have Ofeffecting change.
