Travel+SocialGood NYC

We are a local chapter within a global community of changemakers, passionate about transforming the travel industry into a force for good.

Our goal is to turn New York City into a capital of sustainable travel. We’re connected to other TSG Hubs through a web of networks, and together, we aim to build the travel industry of the future — one in which travel acts as the catalyst for solving the world’s most pressing issues.

Travel+SocialGood launched in the spring of 2013 in partnership with the UN Foundation’s +SocialGood network. Through our initiatives, TSG is building a collaborative community that provides the tools and network to help catalyze our industry’s next leaders.

Our Coalition

The Travel+SocialGood Coalition is a network of travel businesses committed to sustainability. TSG NYC members work to promote and collaborate, connecting the dots between Coalition members, tourism boards, media and other local organizations to showcase the socially responsible side of the tourism industry. Ultimately, the TSG Coalition works to build a universally applicable system for sustainable travel, making it easy for travelers to make decisions on where to stay, visit and shop in confidence that they are supporting the local community.

In New York, the Coalition is open to any travel organization that works directly with inbound NYC travelers (hotels, restaurants, tour operators, stores, cultural institutions, etc.) and has a commitment to sustainable tourism. It is a free membership. Learn more about our goals here.
