Tanya Makarova“Dreams turned into ideas and passion – into an action. It was not an easy way to find a passion, but as always searching gave its results.

A year ago I started looking for a project in sustainable tourism to join with a bold idea to improve something I was passionate about – Travel. Now, being a part of such a talented and inspiring Sustainability Leaders team and making change through spreading a word on responsible tourism, makes me proud.

Thanks so much for this exciting journey Sustainability Leaders Project!”
