2017 is the International Year of Sustainable Tourism for Development, and the Authenticitys Summit has been featured in the agenda with travel, education, and fashion our core values for this sustainability summit.
This is a unique opportunity to raise awareness of the contribution of sustainable tourism to development among public and private sector decision-makers and the public, while mobilizing all stakeholders to work together in making tourism a catalyst for positive change.
A key challenge in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development is to create decent jobs, particularly for women and youth.
Elena Rodríguez Blanco, founder of Authenticitys will be a speaker at the brainstorming session entitled
Work 4 Progress: Innovation for promoting jobs during the European Development Days by “la Caixa” Banking Foundation.
¨Each one of us strives to make the world a better place to live in. But this tickling thought seems daunting and far-fetched. With its great ideas and aspirations to offer people the opportunity to pitch in a larger cause of improving the world, Authenticitys was founded on the belief that everybody should be able to travel the world and explore other cultures and religions.¨(more…)
This year has been named as the International Year of Sustainable Tourism for Development by the United Nations and to celebrate, Authenticitys presented its Annual Summit, in the second edition of the only event that focuses on tourism, sustainable fashion and educational experiences with social impact in the big cities.
The newspaper El País has launched a report about the B Corp system, the business movement that prioritizes social and environmental impact over economic benefit. We, from Authenticitys, are very proud to say that we have the B Corp certificate since August of last year. We believe in being part of a movement with one common goal: to change and redefine business to be a force for good.
Elena Rodríguez Blanco gives you a challenge and asks you to go out and solve it. That process, she says, is the best way to develop a critical mindset, which is an important skill for the 21st century.
“We’re not setting people up to ask the right questions,” Rodríguez Blanco says. “It’s because the traditional format of learning is, for example, me telling you something. That’s why I think travel is very interesting, because it gets you out of your comfort zone and gives you the possibility of exploring unexpected things”.
Travel, Rodríguez Blanco feels, is a great teacher through experiences.(more…)
