Four key points in my story

1. Humanity and tourism have to make radical changes to avoid breakdown

2. We have the knowledge, skills, technology to breakthrough but only if we jettison


business as usual. The future is ours to create.

3. Tourism can contribute to and benefit from that shift provided that we too shift
from being extractors of wealth to generators of “wellth.”

4. Mexico, especially part of the tourism sector which gets people out into nature,
can prosper by leading in this shift.
