At the Center for Responsible Travel (CREST), we believe that tourism - the world's largest service industry - can play a critical role in addressing society's most pressing problems, and we are committed to making travel environmentally sustainable and socially responsible.
The growing threat of climate change makes responsible travel more important than ever. In this moment of crisis, the tourism industry must come together and act as we never have before to develop solutions for our planet and its people. Travel is a privilege that comes with great responsibility from businesses, destinations, and travelers.
In response to the global climate crisis, CREST has developed a new organizational focus for 2020, called Tourism in a Changing Climate.
Through this initiative, CREST will work with all sides of the travel industry to address the environmental impacts of tourism and utilize our cutting-edge research, field projects, and industry leadership to provide urgently-needed climate solutions.
You can support CREST's work to address climate change today by donating to our Giving Tuesday campaign. Your contribution is vital in helping us raise $2,020 in support of our 2020 focus on Tourism in a Changing Climate.
