Help Tourism pi­o­neered sus­tain­able de­vel­op­ment of com­mu­ni­ties through eco­tourism and sup­ported preser­va­tion of cul­ture and na­ture un­der the dy­namic lead­er­ship of Supra­tim Raj Basu. He iden­ti­fied and pro­moted des­ti­na­tions based on eco­tourism and is also the founder of the As­so­ci­a­tion for Con­ser­va­tion & Tourism (ACT), a non-profit NGO started to pro­mote own­er­ship of lo­cal peo­ple high­light­ing the nat­u­ral and cul­tural re­sources around them. He shares, “The travel in­dus­try needs to be recog­nised and its deeds and ac­tions should be ap­pre­ci­ated to keep it on a par with the other in­dus­tries in the coun­try. The In­dia Travel Awards is do­ing a bril­liant job at this, specif­i­cally since it hap­pens to oc­cur in the North East re­gion. Not too many events are or­gan­ised here. Ad­di­tion­ally, he is an ex­pert in iden­ti­fy­ing ru­ral tourism prod­ucts, mo­ti­vat­ing com­mu­ni­ties into ru­ral tourism ser­vices and train­ing lo­cal stake­hold­ers into hos­pi­tal­ity and al­lied ser­vice.” Basu strongly be­lieves that a desti­na­tion is all about the ex­pe­ri­ence, and pre­serv­ing the nat­u­ral ecosys­tem as well as the cul­ture and the lo­cals is an ex­tremely im­por­tant as­pect.
