Led by The Duke of Sussex in partnership with Booking.com, Google, Skyscanner, Trip.com Group, Tripadvisor, and Visa, Travalyst is a non-profit organisation working to identify – and help bring about – the systemic changes needed in order for sustainable travel to be taken out of the niche, and into the mainstream.
We believe tourism can, and must, play a key role in achieving a sustainable future for our world; so we’re convening the key players, and catalysing the necessary action, to change the impact of travel, for good.
We are committed to being a driving force that redefines what it means to travel, helping everyone explore our world in a way that protects both people and places, and secures a positive future for destinations and local communities for generations to come.
The number of people around the world taking international trips has more than doubled since 2000, and is set to increase by the same number again by 2030*. As more and more people travel, so too increases the impact on the environment and local communities – and the opportunities to do good with each trip we take.
Since Travalyst’s launch, the impact of the global pandemic in 2020 has changed the world in innumerable ways. The travel and tourism industry now finds itself in a unique moment in time to address some of the greatest systemic challenges caused by the industry’s acceleration in recent years, and to take the opportunity to create a more sustainable future for destinations, communities, and travellers alike.
