Green Ambassadors of Stayokay
Hostelling International is a global association of Youth Hostels. We are a charity and social empowerment is part of our mission. For the 2017 Year of Sustainable Tourism for Development we have come up with a program to focus on the ten areas of sustainable Hostelling with the aim to communicate those with our associations, hostels and guests worldwide.
In June we did shine a light on staff and volunteers in our network. One great example of how to get staff involved in being more sustainable comes from our association in the Netherlands: The Green Ambassadors of Stayokay, represent a very involved and enthusiastic group of 35 colleagues with one goal: to make the HI Hostels in the Netherlands more sustainable.
They work together to identify key actions that reduce their Hostels’ carbon footprint on energy, waste, water and also improve team’s health & well-being. Wonderful!
