GOOD Awaits

Anna Pollock - What is Regenerative Tourism?

May 26, 2021

In this first episode of GOOD Awaits, Debbie and Josie speak with Anna Pollock, a globally acclaimed thought leader and change catalyst in regenerative tourism. 

Anna shares how her ideas around emerging and alternative models of tourism have developed, and with her thoughtful wisdom introduces us to what regenerative tourism is, what it is not, and what this paradigm shift could mean for Aotearoa New Zealand.

It is an honour to have Anna as our first guest on the podcast, and we hope you find this conversation provocative and enlivening. It’s great to have you with us as we set out on this journey of regenerative tourism in Aotearoa New Zealand.
