Aside from creating memories on the new places I visit, I also want to leave an impact on the people and the places I meet along my travels.
An online movement to inspire, enable and empower travellers AirAsia and partners pledge to jointly tackle responsible tourism by launching the #HowIFly campaign.
How I fly call s for responsible travel, and the value of generating a positive impact on communities, wildlife, and the environment. Over 1.5 billion travellers are expected to travel each year by 2020.
#HowIFly is a call or challenge through social media and will take via Instagram. It challenges travellers who wish to participate to post a 15 o 30-seconds video on how they fly responisble and to tag three or their friends to do the same. Among the participants, three winners will be randomly chosen from the pool of entries. To know more about the campaign visit @AirAsiaPh on Instagram and Viber Public Chat.
During the launch, representatives and officers from Sibaltan Heritage Council led by its president Enrico Cabiguen, OceanQuest Southeast Asia training director and conservation photographer Reggie Reyes, DOT Assitant Secretary for Mindanao Eden David and AirAsia CEO Comendador Signed the #HowIFly travel manifesto to signify the commitment to the proeject.
Here’s a theatrical shadowplay presentation of the #HowIFly campaign by El Gamma Penumbra
How about you, what kind of traveller are you? While you have collected so many stamps on your passports and managed to travel more than three times a year have you left an impact on where you have been and when?
One of my most favorite travel this year was when we visited a very secluded island in Casiguran Aurora. The place is a surfing haven, not many know the place yet and I wish it remains as sacred as we saw it. I was there with the brand FreeWaters and I was given an update this week that 20 filters systems have been donated to 2,200 residents of 4 baranggays in the area with the Freewaters #FeelsGood to be Part of the 1,000 campaign. Casiguran Aurora was one of the places badly hit by Typhoon Haiyan and their fresh water supply was badly affected. With the water filters we gave them they now enjoying fresh water wherever they are.
This is the kind of story the #HowIFly campaign wants if you have the same story, share it and inspire people to become a responsible traveller and not just for photo ops.
