Conscious travel and conscientious tourism, aka turismo consciente, are among our favorite buzzwords. Aspiration in tone, these terms are also practical stepping stones toward a positive future.

Imagine, then, the wonders that might take place as Quito hosts a big event on Turismo consciente September 11-13. Those on the ground are encouraged to provide live video and tweets (suggested hashtag: #TurismoConsciente) and we’ll follow and amplify the goings on.
