In this episode, Debbie and Josie interview Tourism Bay of Plenty’s Chief Executive, Kristin Dunne, who has been a forerunner in regenerative tourism in Aotearoa New Zealand. You’ll hear how Kristin’s courageous leadership has inspired the Bay of Plenty community to create a unique vision for the future of their place, and how understanding the authentic “DNA” or essence of a place is essential to establishing a regenerative visitor economy.
If Episode 1 is an introduction to the thinking behind regenerative tourism, Episode 2 is an inspiring example of this brave and transformative work in action, and demonstrates the need for this thinking at both the regional and national level. We hope you find this conversation as enlivening and motivating as we did.
Join the conversation! We'd love to hear from you!

Thank you for such an inspiring episode Kristin, Josie and Debbie. I love how Kristin talked about defining your place DNA and then developing tourism in a way that protects and enhances that DNA. My mind is racing with a million ideas after listening to this episode as well as Anna’s episode, thank you so much 😊
