Community-Based Tourism (CBT) works towards socio-cultural, environmental and economic sustainability. It promotes small-scale sustainable activities which distribute benefits to indigenous people. We discuss how cross-cultural interactions and exchanges between hosts and guests create mutual benefits and transformative experiences for both parties.
In this webinar, we will present the projects led by the Karenni in Huay Pu Keng, Thailand and the Maasai in Loita Hills, Kenya, and unveil the local stories and perspectives, highlighting the benefits of responsible tourism.
We share how visitors learn first-hand about local ways of life and living cultural traditions. Representatives from the local communities share lessons of the empowering process, which support gender equality and regenerative projects while they gain new skills.
