On the evening of April 23, the Royal Geographical Society in London was packed to the rafters with people eager to look into the future (of tourism) with G Adventures.

Entering its third year, the series has led the conversation about how travellers and travel companies can make the world a better place to live and explore — and the night was as much about answers as it was about questions.

Bruce was joined by Tony Wheeler, Co-Founder of Lonely Planet, Julia Bradbury, TV Presenter, Pippa Jacks, Editor of the Travel Trade Gazette and Lyn Hughes, Editor-in-Chief of Wanderlust. Together, they explored the roles that travel and sustainable tourism play in the modern world, and how they set the agenda for the futures of both the travel industry and our planet.
