In partnership with Bali's Earth Company and multiple corporate and NGO partners, the EWC has launched Asia's Next Gen Hotel Series. The series will shed light on the sustainability pioneers in Asia's tourism industry and provide virtual professional development for the 'Green recovery' for Asia's hoteliers while supporting SDG 6, 7, 12,and 14. The series was developed through the non-residential 2020 EWC Innovation for Sustainable Development Fellows (#EWCinnovationfellows) Program and led by EWC Alumni Tomo Hamakawa and 2020 EWC YSEALI fellow and Earth Company Intern Andi Junila Aulia. Watching the popular Netflix documentary series Street Food that travels around Asian cities to feature the most impressive street vendors, Tomo thought "why can’t and shouldn’t we do this for sustainable hotels?" Over 400 viewers tuned in to the first episode highlighting the circular features of Tomo's own Mana Earthly Paradise Resort and host site for the EWC's 2019 YSEALI Regional Workshop eXL. Subscribe to the YouTube channel to view upcoming virtual (and carbon neutral) tours of Pulau Macan with founder Roderick des Tombe and Sebatu Sanctuary with owner Alex Stanley.
