Remember how we told you that the inaugural G Adventures Change Makers Summit was such a hit that it’s coming back for another year? Well, now the mystery destination has been revealed.

G Adventures’ global agent incentive is being held in…INDIA AND NEPAL from April 20 – 26, 2020.

Agents who earn a place at the Change Makers Summit will see firsthand how their work directly impacts local communities in the destinations G Adventures goes.

More than 150 makers of change from across the world will be brought together at the summit, including members of G Adventures’ team of global purpose specialists and senior leaders.

The week-long trip will give agents the chance see their impact in action, with highlights including Planeterra projects such as Women on Wheels and the Delhi Youth City Walk in India, and the Sisterhood of Survivors and Panauti Community Homestay projects in Nepal.

There will also be destination highlights to help agents build their product knowledge.

The trip ends with a full-day, immersive G Adventures experience with guest speakers, and a special party night to remember.
 

So how do you get yourself a spot on this life-changing trip?

Agents automatically receive one entry per ‘life changed’ (i.e. traveller booked).

You can also enter via the ‘social good’ submission category, by submitting work you have done that gives back to your local community.

Entries are now open and will remain open until January 31, 2019.

To enter visit www.gadventures.com/changemakers and log into Sherpa, or speak to your regional global purpose specialist.
 

The power of the summit

David Green, vice president, G Adventures said the Change Makers summit has demonstrated its success in reminding agents why they do the job they do.

“The feedback following our inaugural Change Makers Summit earlier this year was nothing short of phenomenal,” he said.

“At G Adventures, we change the lives of our travellers when they choose to explore the world with us and as leaders in community tourism we change the lives of people in the places we go”.

“The natural next step for us was to extend this experience to our valued agency partners to help them remember their own purpose, and the positive impact they have with every booking they make.”

Adrian Piotto, Managing Director, G Adventures Oceania said the incentive really was the first of its kind, moving beyond just “sales” and instead looking at lives changed by the impact of travel.

One of the 12 agents from Oceania chosen to attend the 2019 Change Makers Summit was Gerry T from STA Australia, who said that attending the Summit in Peru felt like a “privilege” that will have a flow-on effect for how he sells tours to the region.
