Show Notes

The advent of increased tourism has led to a shift in priorities and perspectives regarding the preservation of the natural environment as construction and development, particularly on the coast, have increased. In this episode, your hosts Nefeli and Julia explore all aspects of sustainability and travel. Generation Z is often described as socially and environmentally conscious, wanting to be mobile, and desiring authentic local experiences. Some of these life choices have been made by their guest Kim to become more eco-friendly in her travels. Do not forget to think critically about your consumption habits!
