Sustainable Projects in Morocco with Journey Beyond Travel
Journey Beyond Travel has always had a central goal of supporting local causes, associations, and initiatives throughout the country, especially in the places our travelers visit. Our founders were Peace Corps volunteers and our staff have spent years in the NGO sector, working for UNESCO, volunteering time with local initiatives and orphanages, and doing their best to our planet a better place.
We’ve listed some of the current causes below that we support at the grassroots level. A percentage from each of our tours goes directly to these projects.
We are proud to be members of the ATTA, the International Eco-Tourism Society, and are certified in Sustainable Community Development and Sustainable Tourism Management.
Fair Trade Program in Morocco
High Atlas Foundation
We were very excited to pilot a program beginning in 2021 with the High Atlas Foundation to not only offset carbon, but give back to the grid for each tour we facilitate. We’ve taken the time to account for our travelers comprehensive carbon footprint, from the types of food they eat and electricity they use, to the carbon cost of their international flights and on-the-ground transport. We’re proud to say that not only are our tours now carbon-neutral… in fact, in traveling with us, you’ll be giving back to the grid!
Additionally, as we’ve done since 2011, we will continue to collect donations from travelers at the time of booking a trip that goes directly to the High Atlas Foundation. We match all donations made by our travelers.
The High Atlas Foundation works with locals to plant trees and with sustainable initiatives. Find out more here: https://www.highatlasfoundation.org
