By becoming part of the Earth Changers global community you agree to the Earth Changers Manifesto.
Earth Changers offers the where, who and why to engage, educate and enable the booking of real sustainable tourism.
Inclusion of people and places is by merit of being Earth Changers: the demonstrable results from true commitment to sustainable development through tourism which we explain.
Inclusion is not determined by awards or certifications – too many have questionable credibility, and often truly sustainable organisations do not have resources to pursue such accreditations.
The site is not paid advertising nor subscription for inclusions.
We do track links to sites and ask your honesty to reference us when booking so that we may earn a referral commission to be a sustainable organisation ourselves.
We're not a travel agent or a tour operator but we curate this unique collection of outstanding positive impact tourism to help guide you. We facilitate your booking for your convenience to be made direct to maximise benefits directly for the local places, people and purpose.
