Short film: How two YHAs are leading the way in sustainability
As travel returns in full force, it’s never been more important to consider the real impact that our choices have on the places and communities that we visit.
YHA was founded with a desire to support sustainable ways of exploring the planet, and we have long embraced environment-positive practices, building and transforming our properties with this philosophy front of mind.
This short film features the tale of two sustainable properties. Premiering on World Tourism Day 2022, as part of Sustainable Travel International’s video series, this film takes a look behind the scenes at two of YHA’s most contrasting sites; the purpose-built sustainable property in The Rocks, where travellers can stay in the heart of Sydney Harbour for a fraction of the cost of the 5-star mega hotels that surround it, and remote accommodation in Pittwater (just an hour north of Sydney) that is only accessible by boat and where sustainable living is a necessary fact of daily life.
