June 1st saw the launch of the new Fair Trade Tourism app magazine for tablets on both the Apple App store and Google Play store. The app has been designed to bring discerning travelers and the travel trade stories, information and ideas from the Fair Trade Tourism portfolio of sustainable tourism products across Africa.

“The new app magazine is aimed at raising awareness about Fair Trade Tourism’s certified and mutually recognized clients through telling stories about them and the practices which are helping them to shine in the sustainable tourism field,” says the organisation’s MD Nivashnee Naidoo. “It’s also a valuable way for us to showcase the incredibly diverse range of African tourism products which either carry the Fair Trade Tourism Certified label or are recognized by us through our mutual recognition agreements with partner certification programmes,” she adds.
