The Long Run is the world’s largest sustainable development initiative led by nature based tourism businesses, aspiring to conserve 20 million acres of biodiversity and improve the life of two million people by 2020. By joining or supporting this movement, you will become part of a unique community of leaders whose successful businesses drive positive change for the health of the planet and well-being of people.
We believe that the best holidays should create life long impacts on you and not to the earth. Our members are pioneers in sustainability. They exchange and learn from each other to continuously expand their positive impacts on nature and people. By staying at a Long Run destination, your stay will be directly improving livelihoods, cultural preservation and environmental conservation of our planet.
Different opportunities exist for you to support The Long Run to strengthen our capacity to help members in their journey towards excellence in sustainability as well as encourage others to join the movement. These start from becoming a Friend of The Long Run to being a Board Member for those who want to help set the future direction of the organisation.
Managing over 5 million acres of land.
Touching the lives of over 500,000 people.
In over 77 cultures.
Investing over $7 million in the 4Cs.
The Long Run provides solutions that are business-minded, yet integrate community and environment. It was developed and is implemented by entrepreneurs and addresses the complexities of a destination approach as no other initiative. We believe that this is an approach worth supporting, sharing and implementing.
