Tourism’s Interconnectedness: Regenerative Food Systems - Part 3 with Nate Smith
In our third episode of three exploring how tourism can support regenerative food systems, we’re thrilled to bring you our conversation with Nate Smith of Gravity Fishing, a man who is a force of nature! Nate was concerned that no one else was doing anything about the extractive fishing industry in Aotearoa and took action to transform the industry, while also using food tourism to reconnect his guests with nature.
Nate speaks to many of the topics we’ve discussed this second season of GOOD Awaits: the power of stories in reshaping our guiding narrative, returning to old ways of knowing, connecting to place through food, educating guests by reconnecting them with the wild, redefining growth, using technology in new and innovative ways, thinking and acting at a systems level, and perhaps most importantly, believing that ‘a small guy’ can change a whole system.
We can all be inspired by Nate, and ask ourselves, “What won’t happen if you don’t step up and do it?”
Join our LinkedIn network of like minded professionals exploring what a regenerative future for tourism can look like. We'd love to see you there and hear your thoughts on this episode.
