Regenerative tourism in its most simple definition, seeks to ensure travel and tourism reinvest in people, places and nature and that it supports the long-term renewal and flourishing of our social-ecological systems (Dredge, 2022). Regenerative tourism offers a ground-breaking set of solutions to rethink and rebuild the tourism industry in a way that develops long-lasting capabilities and strengthens resilience for its direct and indirect stakeholders. It revitalizes local economies, preserves local cultures and biodiversity while offering memorable, authentic and transformative experiences to the guests, allowing destinations to flourish.
