The industrial revolution marked the very moment humankind discovered evermore efficient ways to extract value from nature and people to generate profits. The result? A cascade of exploitative developments in indigenous lands. Gone with the natural habitats are centuries of wisdom from people who have traditionally lived harmoniously and regeneratively with nature. Now that the climate crisis has unfolded, and the world scrambles to achieve a low-carbon, zero-waste lifestyle, we see a rising role these cultures & traditions play in safeguarding our most important ecosystems in rural areas.
As we work towards enhancing rural infrastructure, regenerative tourism is an opportunity to rebuild economic systems. Regenerative tourism is built on unique cultural identities and environmental practices associated with indigenous traditions. It is a model of tourism where the social and environmental well-being of local communities are improved.
Terraformers is an impact startup promoting regenerative tourism offered by indigenous communities to make tourism a force for good. They build a subscription-based platform offering unique travel destinations designed for cultural and environmental regeneration.
