The student guide to traveling responsibly
Travel has the power to change lives in amazing ways. That’s true for you, your students, and the people you encounter along the way. You can never really prepare for how those effects will take shape. But you can prepare to maximize each and every moment of your tour.
To get the most out of your experience and begin to understand what it means to be a citizen of the world, it’s important to remain respectful and open-minded to everyone and everything you encounter. With that idea in mind, we’ve created a set of guidelines for responsible travel that all teachers and students should follow. So, please read through the below carefully, then share the full, printable list with your students.
Traveling responsibly means:
1. Supporting local communities
2. Protecting the environment
3. Respecting wildlife
