The pandemic has given us all pause for thought. While the travel industry is meeting its gravest challenge to date, there is a huge opportunity for a new style to emerge; one that is centred around cultural exchange and ensuring local people and places benefit.

In this, the first of the series, Elizabeth Becker, author of Overbooked, Juliet Kinsman, sustainability editor at Conde Nast Traveller UK and George Stone, editor in chief of National Geographic Traveler join G Adventures founder, Bruce Poon Tip to discuss topics including overtourism vs undertourism, the rise of 'regenerative travel', the changing role of the media and practical tips for travellers looking to play their part and travel better.
