Tourism can contribute directly to the conservation of sensitive areas and habitats through a variety of activities, however, tourism can also negatively impact biodiversity if land and resources are excessively exploited. Therefore, biodiversity conservation and nature protection is one of the priorities tourism stakeholders must care about.

1) A holistic approach: Anyone, anywhere, anytime
Solutions concerning food challenges often look at one aspect, eg hunger or obesity, climate or food waste. Intractable individually, these problems can be addressed holistically at community level. Food solutions start from our daily life.
2) A horizontal approach: Multi-stakeholder engagement
Community is a perfect platform for bringing food stakeholders together, since it is where lifestyles and behaviour are rooted and synergies can be obtained.
3) Behaviour change: Long-term impact
Global Action Plan International is a global leader in sustainable behaviour change. We incorporate behaviour change principles into all our programs. Longitudinal academic studies show that participants in our empowering programs tend to a) Try many new behaviours during the program, b) Keep most of those as ingrained habits, c) Introduce new sustainable habits long after the program has finished.
