There should be no such thing as sustainable tourism

There should be no such thing as sustainable tourism

With 1186 million tourist arrivals, a number equivalent to the populations of Europe, USA, Mexico, and Panamá combined, and accounting for more than USD 1260 billion of travel receipts in 2015, tourism has established itself as one of the fastest-growing industries in the world. Here I share my experience with tourism as an indigenous person. 

My Wonder WOMAN

My Wonder WOMAN

My grandmother; her home, community and cultural traditions, are all at risk of disappearing underneath the rising waters of climate change.  The people of the San Blas islands are in serious risk of losing everything, in our lifetime.  Now, is the time to act and protect our planet.  Climate change is real, and like every superhero teaches, we have the responsibility to raise our voices, raise awareness and protect each other.  Because, in truth, we all share the same home and the same mother - Mother Earth.
