These hosted experiences, based on a “Seven Worlds, One Planet” approach, are a global curriculum designed around the recovery and conservation of our natural world, with opportunities to participate and collaborate on restoring vibrant landscapes, biodiversity, wildlife and livelihoods. They are with the most ambitious, exciting and successful initiatives to protect and restore the diversity of nature and wildlife across our seven continents.
By experiencing these remarkable achievements of harmonising nature and communities, we can be inspired to protect, conserve and restore our natural world, and safeguard our own future – this is the mission of Journeys With Purpose.

Venetia joined JWP as Partnerships Director in February 2022, contributing her knowledge and passion for nature-based and social impact travel most specifically in Latin America, having lived in Buenos Aires and Costa Rica, and spent much time travelling through the continent. She went to school in Lesotho, a small country within South Africa, and was involved in community projects across Zimbabwe, Kenya and South Africa before turning her focus to Latin America where she continues to form relationships with local projects.
