Episode 1: Promoting Community Tourism In Nepal
In this episode, we discuss community-based tourism (CBT) and the ways in which Community Homestay Network has adopted the concept into its model. Episode 2: Waste Management In The Everest Region
For many years, international news outlets have covered the waste problem in the Everest region. What hasn’t been covered as much is the solution to the problem. While the problem remains a challenge, there are several initiatives being taken at the local level. In this episode of the Sustainability Series, we ask experts Alton C. Byers (mountaineer/ conservationist/national geographic explorer) and Tommy Gustafsson (Project Director and Co-Founder of Sagarmatha Next) to shed light on the problem, discuss the current status, and more importantly, walk us through the solution to the problem. Episode 3: Communities, Wildlife and Tourism
This episode of the Sustainability Series features the interrelationship between wildlife, communities, and tourism. Experts and champions of sustainability, Mr. Shiv Raj Bhatta (WWF Nepal), Ms. Sonja Rusticus (Bardia Community Homestay), and Mr. Sudip Jogi (Dalla Community Homestay) shed light on community-based conservation, the human and wildlife relationship near protected areas, and the relationship between tourism and conservation.
