About the Film

In 1950, there were 25 million international tourist arrivals. In 2020, that number will be 1.6 billion. More people are traveling now than at any other point in history. Over-tourism has magnified the impact on the environment, wildlife, and vulnerable populations around the world. Unintentionally, tourists are destroying the very things they have come to see. Tourism has reached a tipping point. Yet, travel is also an opportunity. It can be leveraged as a force for good -- to promote conservation, alleviate poverty and positively transform host communities, while fostering cultural connection and understanding between people from all walks of life.
