Speaker Bio

Sara is co-founder and Managing Director of Slow Adventure. Set up as the commercial arm of the slow adventure movement, the booking platform was launched in 2022 as a new responsible adventure travel company offering adventures that give power back to local communities. All adventures are created by local people, embrace human or nature-powered journeys and, through the Slow Adventure Impact Fund, 5% of each booking goes directly back to the communities to support local conservation and regeneration projects. The customer chooses the project they wish to support at the booking stage.

After managing a flagship European-funded project called SAINT, Slow Adventure was created to continue the slow adventure movement globally. This new model creates positive change and a positive impact that is clear for everyone involved.  Sara: “I’m determined to continue to help small businesses in rural areas, encourage adventurers to slow down to truly connect with places, and help regenerate the places where they adventure each time.”
