What makes Sustainability Leaders United special?

What benefits does the project offer? Here a few testimonials from sustainable tourism champions and changemakers whom we have interviewed.

Why working with SLP is great to get speakers?

"Sustainability Leaders United has been a fantastic way of connecting with organizations seeking insights into sustainable tourism and hospitality. Florian and the team provide professional vetting to ensure the best possible fit between event organizers and speakers. The process creates a win-win for organizations and speakers: I am able to add value for event organizers through tailored presentations while advancing my mission of promoting the importance of sustainability in the tourism system."

It is great to have this resource to come to for inspiration and to reinforce your knowledge of others working towards sustainability within the travel industry. So many champions doing great work go unnoticed and it is helpful that some of the hardest working and most passionate devotees to this mission get highlighted here and their work and insights shared.

Sustainability Leaders United is incredibly important. First – it is inspirational! The stories of each of these leaders serve as an incredible testimony to what can be done. Secondly – it shines a light on the thinkers and doers and shows a global community of like-minded people. So many advocates of sustainable tourism work in their own fields – unaware of the other “fellow travellers” facing similar issues. SLP proves that no one is alone as they work to promote sustainability in the tourism system.

Sustainability Leaders United is one of these places where you feel proud to be part of it when you are selected. Some of the “gurus” in sustainability are featured here. It is a space to share experiences, learn from each other and to grow our responsible tourism network.

Sustainability Leaders United is a valuable voice in the responsible tourism discussion. I read its incisive interviews and articles to learn about good practice examples, stay informed about colleagues’ work, and even find potential partners and collaborators.
