Diana Körner in TEDx: highlights the need for change in tourism for conservation

By Julia Rawlins

LT&C Board Member and sustainable tourism expert, Diana Körner, recently in a TEDxSUMAS in Gland, Switzerland, spoke about the role tourism can play in protecting ecosystems worldwide. Her talk highlights the need for change and how tourism can contribute to the protection of flora and fauna for the next generations. Her call is to individuals and businesses to recognise our power to protect, restore and regenerate the ecosystems on which we all depend – and how this will support businesses to be more attractive, authentic and successful long-term. As Diana explains, we need to strengthen the players who are making a difference on the ground and spread the word. This is exactly what LT&C is doing through identifying examples of tourism and conservation working hand-in-hand and communicating this on our website, newsletter, social media. We are also a community of dedicated practitioners who share, learn and encourage each other across the world – much like a colony of penguins whose survival relies on them working as a team!
