1st Symposium on Technology for Responsible Tourism 

1-4 March 

Calicut, Kerala 

The Faizal & Shabana Foundation is hosting a two-day symposium at Tulah, near Calicut in Kerala. Faizal and Shabana have long been committed to regenerative sustainable development, and they have been able to include some exciting new technology in their integrated clinical wellness resort.  The resort will be fully powered by solar energy and. water conservation through aquaponics, hydroponics and water harvesting. The aim is to become self-sufficient. They are creating a sustainable and eco-friendly ecosystem that features solar power parks, tree plantations, high-tech organic farming, organically grown food, water technology, composting and radiant cooling instead of air-conditioning.



The 1st  Technology for Responsible Tourism Symposium  (TRT) has two purposes:

  • to share cutting-edge technologies which can transform tourism and ensure that it becomes genuinely sustainable showcasing the technology on-site at Tulah, and examples brought to the symposium by participants.
  • to  create and run a website which will provide honest and critical advice on Technology for Responsible Tourism to encourage uptake and deliver maximum impact.
