ACT – Climate Crisis Webinar (20.05.21)
As Chair of ACT I am aware that all those involved in travel and tourism are accountable for their response to the climate crisis.
And that we all need to effectively evaluate and react to the emergency, even those of us who feel relatively small fry players in what is one of the most important global markets.
To quote David Attenborough (COP24) – ‘Many individuals are doing what they can. But real success can only come if there is a change in our societies and in our economics and in our politics.’
To that end, I am delighted to share details and links to our ‘ACT Climate Crisis Webinar’, 20th May 2021 during which we addressed the best way forward and launched our Carbon Toolkit.
In addition to welcoming members of the broader AITO family as well as other industry stakeholders, we benefited from the shared knowledge of an exciting and knowledgeable team of speakers and panellists.

Hi Jono, I thought the event was a real success and I’m so pleased to see all the progress the ST committee and ACT has made together. Looking forward to being involved again soon!
Thanks for having me amongst some great speakers.
Great webinar, thanks for organising! I really commend all you’ve been doing over the last year to engage and support the trade and look forward to Adventure Travel Networking being closer involved with AITO in the coming months.
