Conscious Journeys is a social enterprise promoting an innovative approach, based on a fair and equitable use and access to natural resources, as to enable a concrete well-being of disadvantages and marginalised communities.
Our work is founded on the recognition that the Earth is a dynamic living whole whose complex processes have maintained the conditions for life to evolve over millions of years. Our aim is to ensure viable, long-term economic operations, providing socio-economic benefits to all stakeholders that are fairly distributed, including stable employment and income-earning opportunities and social services to host communities, and contributing to poverty alleviation.
We promote tools for diversification of economic activities of rural communities, through the facilitation of access to markets, and participation of emerging local enterprises, especially small and medium-sized enterprises. We believe that tourism can be used as a tool to empower local communities while recognising, protecting and valuing natural and cultural heritages.
