Uganda, 2008, the world is going through a severe financial crisis and all economies are affected by a development model that makes us doubt about its stability and sustainability. This triggers a crucial question: What activity or industry has shown itself to be resilient in the face of this crisis and at the same time has the potential to bring prosperity to every corner of our planet?
Despite the crisis, tourism remained resilient, expanding and was able to offer opportunities to both territories and travellers around the world. However, in this constant growth, there is a latent risk: in many cases, its massification and the arrival of tourists can be invasive for communities and ecological systems.
THIS INITIATIVE IS OUR REVOLUTION!
The vision was clear, how to land it has been a constant challenge. The world has put different labels on sustainable tourism, but most come from the paradigm of the traveler (responsible tourism, voluntary tourism) or the environment (ecotourism, geotourism). What is innovative about this proposal is that it promotes tourism from the perspective of communities, their territories and their lifestyles. This is how we decided to focus our efforts on the development of Community-based Tourism, and over the years we have learned, grown and given life to this movement, socializing this idea in various public and private entities, but above all, among the communities and their people, from where this concept was born.
