About Us

OUR MISSION is to build a global, diverse and dynamic community of trade members, partners and destinations, who share, and are driven by, a collective passion for sustainable, positive impact tourism, that enrich the lives of both visitors and the host communities

Inspire Global is a collective voice for positive impact tourism around the world

An African proverb says ‘it takes a village to raise a child’ in recognition of the community required to build each other up. I believe as a travel community we can come together to grow tourism sustainably, whilst consciously safeguarding the natural world and our inspirational communities for future generations.

Join the Inspire Global village today, grow your business and become part of the collective voice for positive impact tourism!
