Travel, Love, Change: What Responsible Tourism means
"Responsible Tourism is tourism that is carried out according to principles of social and economic justice and with full respect towards the environment and cultures. Responsible Tourism recognizes the centrality of the local host community and its right to be protagonist in devoting sustainable and responsible tourism in its native land. Responsible Tourism encourages the positive interaction between the tourism industry, local communities and travelers" (AITR Official Definition)
