Dear ECOCLUB Members & Readers
Our thoughts are with the victims of the tsunami disaster and in particular the staff and tourists of our Members Golden Buddha Beach in Thailand,
please support their relief efforts for their neigbouring villages. We also commend our Members in Sri Lanka, Ranweli Holiday Village, Tree Tops Jungle Lodge and River Garden Resort, that were not affected by the disaster, for their assistance to their local communities.
The best that each of us can do in the memory of all victims,
in the years to come is to put pressure where we can, so that every person in the affected areas, and beyond, from now on gets access to a decent job and a decent life, and so that a better type of tourism, that can provide such means to all, emerges from the ruins of the tsunami.
Eco regards for a better, different 2005
