About

Rebecca Hawkins

Rebecca Hawkins has worked in the travel industry for the last 25 years. She has subsequently influenced many of the policies and programmes that have shaped the global sustainable tourism movement.  She now advises large companies, international conservation organisations, travel trade associations and charities on a wide range of issues, such as reducing plastic pollution, conserving water and enhancing tourism’s ability to support the local economy.

Rebecca’s practical  approach to projects combine with her extensive experience of the tourism sector to provide clients with tailor made, practical solutions, across a wide range of issues from reducing plastic pollution, conserving water, over tourism to enhancing the local economic contribution of tourism. Rebecca’s real passion for tourism is working to deliver change within destinations: maximising the positive benefits of the visitor economy to create better places to live work and visit. Alongside managing RHP, Rebecca also does some teaching and PhD supervision for a University and is a judge for a number of awards including the CATEYs and World Responsible Tourism Awards.
