Help Us Save Our Beautiful Planet
For All of Us
We strongly believe that community-based tourism can be used as an effective tool for the implementation of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and UN 2030 Agenda. A tool that provides alternative livelihoods and employment opportunities through locally run community businesses that increase income and reduce poverty for poor rural communities – especially for women and young people.

About Our Organisation
Through community-based tourism initiatives, we promote local craftsmanship and employment opportunities for disadvantaged communities in Cambodia.
SUPPORTING WILDLIFE AND BIODIVERSITY
We promote eco-tourism that protects local wildlife and does no harm to animals through direct and indirect actions.
SUPPORTING LOCAL OWNERSHIP
We work to promote community-based tourism initiatives that have local ownership – are run by local people and build the capacity of local communities.
We work with local organisations and businesses to support local eco-systems and minimise the use of natural resources.
Our Top Priorities
Conscious Tourism Cambodia facilitates initiatives that lead to the development of sustainable community-based tourism projects in Cambodia: tourism that is “good” for the local wildlife and eco-systems – protects natural habitat and wildlife, “good” for people – supports local communities and provides income for local families activities, and is “good” for the planet – minimises the use of natural resources – uses less water, electricity, fuel and promotes recycling.
Supporting development of alternative livelihoods for rural communities living in Cambodia
Offerign alternative options to communities engaed in illegal logging and deforestration.
Minimizing the impact of mass tourism and creating sustainable tourism choices.
Protecting wildlife and habitat through ecotourism travel and experiences.
Arts & Crafts
Empowering women and buildign their capacity through entrepreneurship.
We Have the Power to Impact Our Future, and We’re Doing Something About It
Accelerate programme supports communities to kick start or further develop local tourism initiatives that are environmentally and financially sustainable. Accelerate is a targeted capacity building programme focusing on what makes tourism services work – great customer service and a well-designed tourism product that is tailored to the right segment of the tourism market. We avoid training for the sake of training instead, we create avenues to ensure communities secure long term community-based livelihood options for themselves. Support this project through our campaign “Changing the Face of Tourism”.
We are the first generation to feel the effect of climate change and the last generation who can do something about it
