One of the best things mindful travelers can do is spend their tourist dollars in countries that uphold core values like human rights, civil society and environmental protection. Every December, Bay Area-based Ethical Traveler (a project of the Earth Island Institute) lists “The World’s Best Ethical Destinations.” They honor 10 countries – all in the developing world – that are promoting a socially just, sustainable tourism economy.
Join the architects of this list, and representatives from the award-winning countries, for a discussion about which countries made the 2014 list and why.
