Embracing the five Es of experiental travel
Empathy isn’t just “standing in someone else’s shoes.” Empathy is the ability to understand and connect with the emotion of an experience. Our programs elicit empathy through learning from rather than doing for and by working in collaboration.
Sustainable local and global change depends on the power of relationships developed through adventure and exploration. Based on research and experience, we have developed best practices to simultaneously facilitate collaborative exploration and intercultural immersion on our programs.
Experiential education is at the heart of all Evolve Tours programs. Students focus on community engagement, critical thinking, leadership and reflection as they apply ideas learned on our trips to complex issues at home and in school.
Evolve Tours programs prepare students with 21st-century skills to bring global concepts into the local sphere. Students focus on sustainability, local environments, social justice and global competencies, all needed to create a better world.
The world is constantly changing and so are we. As we honor the interwoven environmental and societal systems that comprise our planet, we know that we, too, are complex and constantly in flux.
