We’re Duavata, the Sustainable Tourism Collective.
We promote the leadership and traditional practices of resource owners in managing their vanua, including through our Conservation Leadership programme.
We offer experiences that are founded on and interconnected with the environment and its conservation.
We strive to integrate cultural heritage and cultural industries into our experiences.
We see travel as a learning experience and a respectful exchange of ideas.
We expect our guests to give back more than they take.
We strive to continuously enhance the human and natural resources required for the future through our everyday sustainability and conservation practices.
We provide peer support to each other to continuously improve our own and collective practices.
We support the next generation of local Fijian conservation leaders through a programme of educational experiences.
We provide mentoring support to others within the industry and seek to encourage more participation in sustainable tourism.
We seek to provide constructive input into national policies and provide a link between policy and implementation on the ground.
We support peer to peer learning and training between operators and their community partners on specific sustainability measures (nursery development, waste management, marine conservation, sustainable sourcing etc).
