 Our Commitment to Sustainability  

We at Global Family Travels are passionate about creating community-based, family-friendly trips that are truly meaningful, encouraging travelers of all ages to become both stewards of the environment and citizens of the world. Guided by our three community-based pillars of “Learn, Serve & Immerse,” every tour, every experience and every destination shares a commitment to sustainability. In fact, we aim go one step further, by applying principles of regenerative tourism, working with local non-profits or community led organizations to help ensure that the travel experiences we design intentionally benefit local communities and environmental systems, so that all beings can thrive in a holistic way. (Listen to our Founder share principles of regenerative tourism: Regenerative Tourism: When Sustainability isn't Enough, a Podcast by Common Ground/Toposohy.)

Aligning Travel with the Global Goals


Global Family Travels approach to tourism ensures that our travel experiences we design help make a meaningful contribution to people’s lives and the local environment of the destinations we visit, and we are honored to partner with several organizations to deliver community-based adventures, both globally and locally. In developing our Learn, Serve & Immerse travel experiences, Global Family Travels is also inspired by many key United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UNSDGs).  The Global Goals are 17 social, environmental and economic goals that frame the global agenda for sustainable development between now and 2030.  Learn more in this blog: Transformational Trips to Support the Global Goals.

Global Family Travels Commitment to Climate Change and Tomorrow's Air Initiative

With the tourism industry having such an obvious impact on the climate, and and being so heavily impacted by climate change, Global Family Travels has taken significant steps to not only be conscious of our impacts, but to actively work towards minimizing our carbon footprint. Read a couple of blogs we shared:


As signatories of the Glasgow Declaration on Climate Action in Tourism, we have pledged to halve emissions by 2030 and become completely net zero no later than 2050. Another way of working towards that goal of minimizing our carbon footprint is by becoming a Tomorrow’s Air member. Global Family Travels offers travelers the opportunity to contribute $25 (or more) to Tomorrow’s Air on every trip. This small payment contributes to removing emissions from our atmosphere, thus maintaining our planet’s health for future generations to explore it themselves. Even if you are taking a self-planned trip, you can still contribute to Tomorrow’s Air

Climate Action Pledge


We truly believe travelers of all ages have the opportunity to become environmental stewards and citizens of the world. With this in mind, Global Family Travels  announce a Climate Action Pledge. This new program will continue to expand and grow over the coming months with a carbon offsetting program for our travelers. To kick things off, we have launched a Climate Change Resource Corner as part of our monthly newsletter, which features news and educational resources focused on climate change to inspire travelers.
