At The Tourism Collective, we're committed to demonstrating how tourism can be a force for good by helping communties thrive whilst safeguarding the special places they love.
To do this, the first question we ask our clients when we begin our journey with them, is, what does visitor economy success look like for your locals?
We know that visitors can support the economic viability of a destination – these metrics are readily available, and we’re conditioned to think of visitor economy success in this way - but do we truly understand the impact of visitors on the environment? The impact on social and community harmony? Or how they change the locals way of life that they love?
We see visitor economy success for local communities as the net positive benefit for visitors, environment, community and industry.
Ultimately, what tourism can do for a destination really comes down to what success looks like for that destination. Our role at The Tourism Collective, is to work together with destination custodians to understand what success means for them, and then enable them to achieve it.
To do this, we embark on a process of deep listening to understand all perspectives. Only then can we identify ways to support destinations to achieve their vision. This ground-up, thoughtful and agile approach to our work permeates everything we do, and ensures that every outcome we deliver speaks directly, and truthfully to the needs of the host community.
