Resilient Initiatives, Lasting Community Bonds 

Travel is back and up on the rise globally following the pandemic. How are the responsible tourism initiatives across Asia that we previously featured faring? We check in to see how they have turned challenges of the pandemic into opportunities to continue benefiting communities, from red pandas, underprivileged women, to youth-at-risk.  


On the need for community support- we spent time in Singapore’s Lengkok Bahru neighborhood with The Saturday Movement as they bring joy to elderly residents every day through friendship and companionship, and particularly over food from S17, their community kitchen, at their Saturday afternoon block party lunches.


Continuing with the theme of connections to the elderly, our community blog features a gerontologist who reflects on the significance of community bonds and volunteer efforts in providing warmth to the elderly while the founder of the GenLab Collective shares her  journey of starting an initiative that fosters connections and mutual learning between the elderly and the youth.
