Wanderlust takes us to distant lands or deep below the surface of the vast ocean that covers more than 70 percent of the surface of the planet. We come face-to-face with unspoiled ecosystems, experience new customs and culture, and discover a new piece of ourselves when we travel the world. Yet we only have one Earth and to become global citizens, we must preserve the world’s natural wonders so that future generations can enjoy and explore them as well. This is why Contiki Vacations, powered by The Treadright Foundation, created Contiki Cares – to encourage young travelers to explore the world, but also be mindful of more than where we leave our footprints behind.

Travelers are beginning to be more mindful of the impact that they have when they explore the Earth and the oceans. Have you ever wondered what small changes you can make when traveling, snorkeling, diving, or visiting a place you’ve never been before?

Contiki brought together our sustainability partner Céline Cousteau (granddaughter of the legendary Jacques Cousteau, and an environmental activist herself) and YouTube star Alli Speed to discuss how you can incorporate small changes into your daily life – all of which will resonate throughout your travels and change the way you affect the world.
