Flight Centre Travel Group is committed to promoting and selling travel that respects human rights, the environment and social equality - and we have embodied this commitment with our Greener Global program.
We want Global Gathering to be the amazing event it always is and to show that we know how to have fun - but we also want to demonstrate to the world how to travel responsibly.
We have some exciting actions in place to "ensure we are leaving Bali better than when we arrived" and there are 5 main things that you can do during your stay to ensure you are doing your part to preserve and enrich the world worth seeing.
Much of the world suffers from a shortage of clean water so we can help by reusing hotel towels, taking short showers, and turning off the tap! You will also be provided with a reusable water bottle to ensure you are always hydrated.
Ditch the plastic bag, refuse unnecessary packaging, dispose of your waste responsibly and pick up rubbish when you see it! Recycle as much as possible. We are working with our hotels to ensure there is signage in place for you to know how to dispose of your waste responsibly.
Shop in the local markets and stores and utilise the expertise of local guides when booking tours or activities. Contribute to the local economy as much as you can.
Take a ‘look but don’t touch’ approach to wildlife activities and avoid any attractions that involve ‘performance’, riding or closely engaging with wild animals.
Along with obeying local laws, this relates to dressing and behaving in a manner appropriate to the community.
