Gaia Passage – gaiapassage.com – is a work in progress. The idea is to generate a “white paper” for every country in the world, on environmental and cultural conditions, issues, and who is doing what about them, as well as examining both how they effect tourism and how tourism effects those issues. GaiaPassage.com was born out of more than 20 years of experience working with the Green Travel Group.
