Journeys with Meaning
For over a decade, Journeys With Meaning has used Responsible Travel to bring inspiring stories of hope, resilience, innovation, and change to urban Indians and others who are often disconnected from Nature and the life lessons it can teach.
Our Learning Journeys have proven to be an extremely powerful tool that takes us from theory to practice, from reading to experiencing, and from watching to doing.
Focusing on conservation education with responsible travel, JwM offers customized learning journeys across India (and Goa) to schools and to groups.
