Going Beyond Eco Tourism

CERES Global
Our Vision for Change
For everyone to fall in love with the Earth

In all we do, we aim to reconnect people
to each other and the earth.

Student Trips
Key Concepts
• Eco tourism - The International
Ecotourism Society (TIES), defines it
as “Responsible travel to natural
areas that conserves the
environment and improves the
well-being of local people”
• Transformational Tourism – Such
tourism must stimulate change by
provoking a deep questioning of
the purpose and meaning of
people’s lives through empathic,
engaged, authentic and invited,
rather than imposed, encounters
with the lives of others. (Deville &
Wearing, 2013)
Transformations through tourism
• Reisinger (2013) - The
true potential for tourism
lies in creating
opportunities for people
to reach their existential
potential and reflect on
their existence and their
authentic place in it.
• Savenger (2013) - This
process of transformation
is most engaged through
cultural contrast.
Participant/Tourist
Transformations
It was a wonderful adventure in so many
ways – physically, emotionally,
spiritually. I was outside my comfort
zone, at the edge of my experience,
challenged and confronted at times and
I have been rewarded. My awareness is
developing, my perspective has shifted. I
have grown as a man and feel more
connected with myself, with the earth,
with my family and with the wonderful
people at Mapuru. (Mapuru trip 2017).

• The trip aims to explore the impact of
plastic waste in the Indonesian
archipelago. With an added focus on
disaster response and its relationship
to community change around waste,
participants also explore sustainable
recovery and community resilience
• The trip explores how protecting
marine environments and reducing
plastic waste can catalyse collective
action within communities and
improve livelihoods.
• Activities
• Engagements with local members from
our in-country partner organisations.
• Visits to sites to learn about local
action to combat plastic pollution and
disaster rebuilding efforts from the
bottom up.

programs about waste; learn more about
ecotourism/sustainable tourism; organic farming
Requests for future engagements between
CERES and CDC –earthquake rebuild; continue
plastics theme – waste management including
composting; ecotourism
Measuring
Transformation
How can we measure long-term
transformation?
Reisinger, 2013 asks:
• Which specific types of travel
and tourism facilitate and
inhibit the process of
transformation?
• Can transformational tourism
result in human development
and sustainable life and our
survival?
• Can we make our life better
through transformational
tourism and save the planet?
And, if yes, how?
Where to from here ?
• Get involved with CERES Global
• Project themes that may interest you
– Timor Leste – food security
– Samoa – women’s empowerment
– Mapuru – Cultural Preservation
– Indonesia – post disaster rebuild
and plastic waste

  • 13. Transformations through tourism • Reisinger (2013) - The true potential for tourism lies in creating opportunities for people to reach their existential potential and reflect on their existence and their authentic place in it. • Savenger (2013) - This process of transformation is most engaged through cultural contrast.
  • 14. Participant/Tourist Transformations It was a wonderful adventure in so many ways – physically, emotionally, spiritually. I was outside my comfort zone, at the edge of my experience, challenged and confronted at times and I have been rewarded. My awareness is developing, my perspective has shifted. I have grown as a man and feel more connected with myself, with the earth, with my family and with the wonderful people at Mapuru. (Mapuru trip 2017).

  • 25. Measuring Transformation How can we measure long-term transformation? Reisinger, 2013 asks: • Which specific types of travel and tourism facilitate and inhibit the process of transformation? • Can transformational tourism result in human development and sustainable life and our survival? • Can we make our life better through transformational tourism and save the planet? And, if yes, how?
