The DMC Network is thrilled to announce the appointment of Lorenzo Pignatti, President of Terraevents, a DMC Network Company, as President of the Association of Destination Management Executives International (ADMEI) in 2021.

Miek Egberts, recently completed the four-week online Sustainable Tourism Training Program run by the Global Sustainable Tourism Council. She imparts her experience and learnings.

 

For those of you who know me, you know that I am very engaged in sustainable development. I believe in a conscious, human-focused approach to all we do. In my opinion, it is an essential component in becoming a caring, resilient and thriving world.

 

For me, sustainability is a mindset and needs to be at the heart of everything we do. You need to apply it to everything you see around you. When you look at an area in your business, company or life, challenge yourself. Are you doing everything you can to be as sustainable as possible?...

Nadi Shodhana - Technique 1

By Karen Brar, Founder of Nourished Union

 

For some of us, working from home may be a big adjustment. For others, working from home may not be new but maybe now you are sharing limited home office space with a partner or balancing work with taking care of the needs of housebound kids.

 

Whatever your particular situation, the past number of months have likely involved a lot of reacting, pivoting  and simply trying to make it through the day.  But it’s never been more important than in these uncertain times to take care of ourselves, so we can – in turn – take care of each other.

 

This month Karen Brar from Nourished Union walks us through Technique 1 of Nadi Shodhana'.  In Sanskrit Nadi means 'channel' and Shodhana means 'purification' so the purpose of this technique is to purify and cleanse the physical and spiritual channels...

The Passions Behind the People

By Heather Williams, TERRAEVENTS, a DMC Network Company operating in four European destinations  – France, Italy, Portugal and Spain.

 

The memory...

Temperate gin-clear waters of the Coral Sea, a phantasmagoria of twirling disco-coloured tropical fish, coral of every hue and nuance and a way too close encounter with a reef shark...

 

The activity…

Scuba-diving the Great Barrier reef in Australia.

 

The time of day…

An early summer morning in my garden, the rest of the family safe & silent in their beds, solitary musing whilst relishing the first coffee of the day.

 

The smell…

Espresso coffee wafting through the house early morning.

All Is Not Lost - Trends In Sustainability In 2020

By Aoife Delaney, Director of Marketing & Sales, the DMC Network and President-Elect, SITE

 

While we are continuing to navigate through this CoVid19 landscape and adjust our business models to work within this new world, we mustn’t forget that many of the priorities that were important to us and our clients last year will remain, and some, in fact, will be enhanced.  For me, I feel sustainability will be one of those areas.  If anything, this year has taught us how fragile our earth is, and how easily we can take it for granted.

 

I find the world of sustainability fascinating.  Yes, because it is a way to educate myself on ways to look after our planet, but also because of the sheer range that the title encompasses.  I would imagine that we are all in the same boat in our initial thinking that ‘being sustainable’ is all about recycling and reducing waste, right?...
