Student travel company Ground Asia has created responsible traveller training modules and made them free for anyone interested in travelling responsibly. The move means that not just students, teachers and faculty, but everyone can learn how to do the right thing on sensitive issues such as single-use plastics, responsible photography, child safety and giving donations when visiting Asia and beyond.
The initiative follows the company’s transformative responsible training workshop for its staff in Mai Chau, Vietnam in March. The workshop was created to address challenges that kept arising during student trips to Asia. “Following the workshop, best practices from four years of leading student groups in Asia were distilled into new practical guidelines, policies and procedures for all Ground Asia trips,” said Lauren Groves, general manager at Ground Asia.
The training manual implies the company’s field operations are closely aligned to the values and aims of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.
