Lessons from Franci Neely on Eco-Tourism & Human Connection

Eco-tourism is becoming more popular than ever. Grandview Market Research projects it will grow over 15% a year through 2030.

Many factors are driving the demand for sustainable tourism in 2022. We are experiencing some of the worst weather events in history. A recent report shows that the landslide in Ischia, Italy this past week was due to climate change as much as poor construction practices. Germany also logged the warmest year on record, which is also blamed on climate change.

As fears about the growing problems associated with climate change rise, more people are looking for ways to lower their carbon footprint. The travel industry accounts for between 8% and 11% of global greenhouse emissions, so embracing sustainable travel practices is going to be more important than ever.

Franci Neely is one of the renowned tourists that can teach us all something about sustainable tourism. Although her recent stories focus largely on building human connections, she also shared some wisdom that sustainable tourists can embrace as well.
