WeTravel and the Transformational Travel Council have launched an Introduction to Transformational Travel educational course in the WeTravel Academy for any travel pro looking to gain the resources needed to add transformational travel experiences to their operations.
Amidst a shift in reducing extractive tourism for the long-term survival of people and the planet, the free, one-hour course will introduce the Transformation Economy to learners and provide relevant tools necessary to design non-extractive travel experiences in any travel-related business.
“When operating a travel business—whether as a travel advisor promoting experiences or a tour operator taking travellers into communities—we know there’s a responsibility to operate all tourism with a non-extractive, instead interactive and local approach. When we commit to bettering all stakeholders through our travel experiences is when we see genuine, global transformation,” said Zaky Prabowo, WeTravel’s co-founder. “In partnership with the industry leader in Transformational Travel, we commit to using our Academy as a tool to help businesses embrace impactful travel experiences that not only transform their travelers, but transform the communities and people they visit.”
WeTravel launched its Academy in December 2021, to provide a free educational hub for the travel industry to be empowered, educated, and equipped on all facets of business operations, including sustainability and inclusive travel.
Since its launch, more than 500 resources have been created in 12 subjects. To date, nearly 10,000 travel businesses have downloaded its resources and hundreds have enrolled in its courses, the company says.
"The next generation of travel"
Aligning with its resources on sustainable travel, including an Introduction to Sustainable Tourism course with Tourism Cares, WeTravel partnered with the Transformational Travel Council to provide the tools necessary for any travel professional to better understand how to guide transformations in travel and why it’s so important.
Guest lectured by Tanner Colton, the Transformational Travel Council’s chief operating officer, with content provided by both businesses, the course outline explores three phases of creating transformational travel experiences from reimagining relationships with travellers, revitalizing travel design approach, and reactivating your travelers intentional engagement.
“We relish opportunities to share our rigorously developed frameworks, tools, and practices with the world. A more enlightened approach to travelling and tourism design creates more enlightened people, who create a more enlightened world. This is the next generation of travel, it has to be. We appreciate that the good folks at WeTravel are helping us transform tourism and the lives it touches.”
