Regenerative Agritourism

Until now, the main focus of sustainable tourism has been on minimising the negative effects of tourism. 

Regenerative tourism goes further because it:

  • focuses on the primary needs of the community 
  • contributes to the quality of life of local people 
  • helps communities and tourism sites continuously renew themselves.

Regenerative Agritourism is defined as having a primary focus on the storytelling of agro-ecosystems (and the products derived from them) that are regenerative and exhibit traditional cultural and heritage significance based on Indigenous Knowledge Systems (IKS). 

A regenerative agritourism ambassador protects and promotes this knowledge to support in building the regenerative movement.
