Travel Guide: Negros Island

In the Philippines, Negros in particular, the thing you notice first, the thing that stays with you, is the people. They are perhaps the kindest and most inventive population we have ever met. When you get off the plane, you realise the good nature and intense past history that the people have lived through. You begin to understand the current socio-political landscape and the diversity in thought.

On this expedition the team entered a realm vastly different from a typical holiday, in some of the most pristine, undeveloped places of the Philippines. Together with our fantastic partners, Danjugan Sanctuary and The Philippine Reef and Rainforest Conservation Foundation, inc., surrounded by natural phenomena we used our Brainmelt systems-thinking approach and design framework to create tangible solutions to the ocean plastic pollution leaked from land sources challenge. 

Recognising this, we made sure, when setting the various natural and cultural spectacles for this expedition, to jack things up, make sure that the crew had no idea what was coming. Intense. Natural. And always real.

If you are looking to immerse yourself in the Negros Island with a crew of adventurers while working in sustainable development projects then perhaps the Negros Inhabit Impact Adventure would be perfect for you.
