Highlights of the Week
Welcome to The Luxury Channel
This week, we celebrate our planet and its species. The Luxury Channel comes over all green! We attended the prestigious Tusk Conservation Awards supported by Land Rover, in the presence of HRH The Duke of Cambridge, and watched Herizo Andrianandrasana receive the Tusk Award for Conservation for his work in Madagascar. The plight of endangered species is one close to our hearts, and most recently we went to Kenya with Land Rover and the Born Free Foundation to discover the life-changing work undertaken by Virginia McKenna and her son Will Travers in the African bush. Luxury visitors and tourism in Africa play a major part in spending dollars for the long-term survival of many of Africa’s species. Our report on this incredible adventure to follow soon, so watch this space!
We also attended the opening of one of London’s most thought-provoking art exhibitions, entitled “Here Today….” The exhibition is a unique exploration of the escalating extinction crisis and the current pressure that humanity is placing on the planet. Whilst we urge you to visit before the exhibition moves on in mid-December, we’ve got a sneak preview of some of the artworks, To see more, click here.
“Here Today….” runs until 17th December 2014 at The Old Sorting Office, 21-33 New Oxford Street, London WC1.
As a new sense of conscience is changing the face of the luxury industry, individuals such as Dr. Jem Bendell are challenging companies to respond and place ethical sustainability at the very heart of their businesses. In our film Going Green, we discover how fine living can survive alongside an increasing need for social responsibility.
Finally, thanks to the launch of Hugh Bonneville’s latest film Paddington, Peru will be back in our collective conscious, so we meet Jose Koechlin of Inkaterra, who has spent a lifetime creating one of the world’s most sustainable luxury resorts right in the heart of the country.
