"Convening world-leading thinkers, policy makers and business leaders, the SLOW LIFE Symposium aims to accelerate progress towards sustainable business practices in the tourism industry, with a particular focus on supporting small island states." [1]

"Six Senses Resorts and Spas was founded in 1995 by Sonu Shivdasani, Chairmand and CEO, and his wife, Eva Shivdasani, Creative Director. From the outset, the concept of Six Senses was to blend luxury and sustainability – ‘intelligent luxury’ – and provide sustainable tourism options not just for guests, but also for suppliers and partners...

"A Carbon Sense Fund is collected from guests to contribute to the Six Senses Carbon Offset Programme, neutralizing all carbon produced including guest’s travelling to the resorts.

"The SLOW LIFE Trust has been established in both the UK and Thailand to manage these funds." [2]
