Thomas Ellerbeck

“We are all well aware of the travel industry’s power to create change. Tourism is much more than simply sun, sea and sand. For many people in the world it is the key to a more secure and prosperous life. We are also aware, however, that tourism can bring challenges for both man and nature. At TUI Care Foundation we want to strengthen the positives that tourism brings and find solutions to the challenges.”

Thomas Ellerbeck, Chairman of the TUI Care Foundation’s Board of Trustees
