27 Aug  Earth Changers: Sustainable tourism, the SDGs and how storytelling can change the world
In today’s episode I’m joined by Vicky Smith from Earth Changers, a site dedicated to promoting the best ethical and sustainable travel options the world has to offer. Vicky tells us how she found her purpose through travel and why she’s committed to helping people find the best opportunities to change the world as they explore.
We discuss a whole range of topics from the Sustainable Development Goals to finding your purpose and even how ‘dark tourism’ can help to change your perspective and even the course of history. Plus we swap a few travel stories of our own too!
