Florie, what first triggered your interest in sustainable tourism?

My interest began when I was a student and decided to write my thesis on the implementation of sustainable policies in hotels, and how to successfully implement the necessary changes to allow the introduction of more ecological practices.

I did my degree in International Business and, in the last year, decided to specialize in tourism and hospitality, mainly because I had always wanted to travel. I loved the idea of selling “experiences” and thought tourism was an important source of local development worldwide.
