Darren - Hello there, noticed you mentioned eco-tourism below. Was wondering what eco-tourism services or options are out there?

Maverick Travel - Just wanted to share a photo of myself with my boys, Benjamin and Luke who are 8 & 6yo.  I had a Travel with Kidz conference in Ayers Rock and my husband and kids flew up to join me.  My focus was eco-tourism so our trips were done with the local Anangu people and their company.  This photo is when we did a dot painting workshop - a great experience and we've since had our artwork framed and displayed in our office.

Cheers, joanne

Maverick Travel - Hi Howard, just back a few days ago so extremely busy (which is great).  Haven't started my green issue, will be doing that in January and I'm sure I will come to you for an article/ green street blurb of some sort.  We're all doing a bit of flying at the moment which isn't good for our stats, just doing Oct now. sorry for the delay...cheers.Joanne.  PS the Java cafe night looks like it was a success - well done.

NACC Sustainability-People - Hi Joanne and team.... your'e going pretty well I reckon, especially seeing the travel you would need to do. I see ther was a special on Eco tourism in the saturday Courier Mail.... how are your plans going for all that. Cheers, Howard

Maverick Travel - What else have we been up to?  Debbie just returned from Tahiti (hard to keep GSS score down when we're doing so much flying).  Here's a picture of the Four Seasons in Bora Bora.  Jenny's just returned from Vietnam so waiting on a photo of that many places so little time!! cheers joanne

Maverick Travel - A couple of months ago one of our trade publications "travel weekly" brought out a green issue so I might chat to their editor to get his take on what qualifies as eco-tourism.  I have my own ideas but it would be good to get a clearer message, will let you know, cheers joanne

NACC Sustainability-People - Hi Joanne ..... I'd like to know what criteria the travel industry uses to describe 'eco holidays' .... so that I know just how eco-friendly it is. Is there a green star rating of sorts? Cheers, Howard

Maverick Travel - Hello fellow green streeters, it's Joanne here from Travelscene Samford.  In an upcoming edition of  "The Samford Traveller"  we've decided to make it a green issue and as such I thought I would ask like-minded people what would they be interested in reading/knowing more about in the world of eco holidays/tourism?  I welcome any feedback, thank you!

NACC Sustainability-People - Joanne... the idea is that we do the GSS each month so that we can see the changes. Because you put your score up toward the end of last month there's only been a short break between putting them up.... but the survey data will be one month apart. Most of your data is probably going to be the same but where its different it may trigger a change to your GSS. Does that make sense? Cheers, Howard

NACC Sustainability-People - Hi Joanne ..... I know you're vey busy but are you able to do the survey in the next couple of days, to get your Green Street Score for August? Cheers, Howard

NACC Sustainability-People - Hi Joanne .... "Samford Traveller" idea sounds good ... also the eco holiday meanings are interesting! Hope the prize wangling goes well. Cheers, Howard

Maverick Travel - HI everyone, not reported figures yet but working behind the scenes on my "green issue" of The Samford Traveller.  Also spending time on eco tourism, which means many different things.  One are eco lodges that are sustainable and only employ locals.  Can also incorporate experiencing a community project, providing a pathway for families to support and protect the environment while on holidays.  Also trying to wangle a prize from an eco lodge to use as an incentive prize for our Green Street Cluster - so far no luck though...cheers..Joanne

NACC Sustainability-People - Yes, that threw us into a spin.... nice to have it all cleared up. Cherrs, Howard

Caboodle Web Design - Hi Joanne, Nice to meet you tonight. You can now re-do your Green Street score if you like. It will work now...what broke it was when you put 3.75 for staff...but it takes decimals now so all good! Cheers Scott
