Fact 4: Taking part in something greater than yourself feels... great
Ah, what fun it is to do a good deed! Just imagine how much being a part of something bigger than yourself can change your view of the world around you. One of the most striking lessons I've learnt is that we all have a role to play in the future of our planet. Everything we do counts, whether we adopt eco-responsible practices on a daily basis, buy local products, save water and reduce waste or favour sustainable means of transport. These actions, however small, help to minimize our impact on the environment.
I am convinced that planning is also essential if we are to preserve and respect the beauty of our region. Before you set off on your adventure, I strongly encourage you to find out all you can about the destination, understand local issues, and get to know the local way of life. Being well-informed enables you to behave respectfully and responsibly throughout your stay.
I look forward to meeting you on your next adventure right here in Eeyou Istchee Baie-James!
