‘The Happy Tourist’. Small challenges for tourists and locals, a fun way to become a better tourist in your own or another city.
People will return to travel the world, and they should. What we can do is try to reinvent tourism as a force of good. So that in the new world that emerges from the pandemic, tourists will be invited to act sustainable and add a positive impact to the places they visit.
Small challenges for tourists and locals, a fun way to become a better tourist in your own or another city.
