Background of The Ecohelpline :
The Eco Helpline has been established to promote environmental best practices in the tourism industry and beyond, in an easy to understand, simple to implement manner. As the course is totally free, there is no reason why every tourism worker in the world cannot participate, learn, and make a difference.

The Ecohelpline is an all new international partnership of experienced industry stakeholders from a range of areas across the tourism spectrum; the Eco helpline team is:
1. Hemant Thite, Renewable energy expert from India. Also Managing Director of The Biogas Helpline. The BiogasHelpline is a professional body based in Singapore, formed to promote and develop biogas. The BiogasHelpline provides online support for queries, funding, partnering, consulting, courses and careers.
2. Lise Tyrrell, managing director of Eco Tropical Resorts, based in the United States. Lise Tyrrell’s travelling experiences sparked her interest in eco tourism, which in turn led to the idea of compiling a directory web site for eco lodges. She developed an Eco Rating for hotels to fill out and get a score as to how “eco” they were. This helps guard against “greenwashing”. The Eco Helpline modules are based on the Eco Tropical Resort’s butterfly club eco questionnaire, which was designed by Lise, in collaboration with Jem Winston.
3. Jem Winston, Managing Director of Rosalie Forest Eco Lodge, and formerly of 3 Rivers Eco Lodge in Dominica, Caribbean. The eco lodge has won numerous international awards for its environmental Best practices and community tourism projects. Jem is also the Director of Education at The Sustainable Living Initiative Centre (S.L.I.C.) Dominica, offering community workshops in renewable energy and assisting participants with funding to purchase their own systems. We look forward to welcoming you to the ecohelpline.com
