Regenerative Tourism by the Gippsland Social Enterprise Collective (GSEC)

Regenerative Toursim in Gippsland

SENVIC’s Gippsland Social Enterprise Collective held a Gippsland Community Hub event as part of this year’s Social Enterprise World Forum at Fisherman’s Landing on Thursday, 8 September

In collaboration with GELLEN, FLOAT and Up the Creek, including the Venture Out team and Skipper Pete’s Water Taxi service, they explored social enterprise approaches for regenerative tourism, in action.

Regenerative Tourism is the idea that tourism should leave a place better than it was before. Showcasing social enterprise, creativity and nature-based tourism, they explore the power of regenerative tourism to support regional communities on the frontline of the climate emergency.

We are thrilled that the World Wildlife Fund will partner with GSEC for a three-day ‘Innovate to Regenerate’ Local Learning Lab in November.

Making new connections on country

Students from Mallacoota P-12 College who were on day five of their Lake Tyers paddle expedition with ‘Up the Creek’ joined in the day, along with Year 9 students from the CATCH program at Lakes Entrance Secondary College.

The program included connecting young people with nature to sow the seed of careers in creative environmental stewardship, navigating with nature, ethical hospitality, creating meaningful livelihoods, discovering the FLOAT vessel, walking and talking.
