Tourism

Celei understands that our planet needs the urgent shift from the current touristic model to a regenerative tourism model. Although difficult due to its high carbon footprint, the power of traveling as an educational motor, and the impact this education could have is massive. That is why we work in collaboration with local partners to be as sustainable and conscious as possible.

We believe in a local and collaborative economy, that’s why we promote our programs and activities through our technological partner

These practices will help create an informed community that has the means to be able to generate one´s own thinking. A regenerative thinking based on
experience and on the contrast of information. This is increasingly a requirement to build a cultural bridge that leads us to a more welcoming society, with a superior cultural wealth rich in values.

At celei we draw inspiration from Simon Sinek’s model ‘’start with why’’, to redefine the concept of current education and improve the world we live in.
