About Us

OUR VISION is to build a global, diverse and inclusive 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 community and marketplace to promote 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.
