What’s it all about?
Nothing beats the feeling of exploring a new city. The people, sights, smells and sounds are intoxicating. So much so that we sometimes get ahead of ourselves and commit a cultural faux pas. Don’t worry, we’ve all been there.
You can’t learn everything in a guidebook, which is why this class will teach you how to travel ethically and immerse yourself in different cultures respectively.
Thinking of travelling? Want to reduce your ecological footprint? Want to have meaningful cultural exchanges with locals? Don’t want to be one of ‘those’ travellers? If you find yourself nodding yes, then this class is for you.
What will we cover?
In this class you’ll learn and discuss:
- Navigating cultural norms,
- How to minimise your impact on the environment,
- Ethics surrounding photographing locals,
- How to barter in a respectful way,
- Should you give money to beggars?
