  1. RE-imagineers
    Sustainable & Responsible Tourism/BPO/ITES Development in Rural/Tribal Displaced with a Participatory & Community Approach Towards Holistic Development in Destinations: India & N.E India,Towards Poverty Alleviation

    *ISO 14001 is desperately short in addressing the complexities of Tourism & ITES , as they are unique being almost mainly in Rural Belts or Tier 11 cities used as hubs to access destinations.Being a generic wide sweeping regulations across all industries and each industry as unique in terms of eco systems concerned ,cultural & a myriad of rich heritage ,found nowhere on the scale India has been blessed with.These very are slowly using their slot in our collective consciousness as a nation as insensitivity takes hold ,spawned by the advent of cable & satellite Television in all parts of our planet, in which 70% 0f all aired prgrams are based on the get more ,bigger,faster etc syndrome that is now graduatingfrom basic needs to continual wants.
    *RE-imagineers has concrete plans to establish representation in India,Bangalore; for a globally recognised organization,with a solid base or foundation of integrity certifying of entities that decry their setups as ‘as Eco Tourism/FRiendly’.Which in fact is anything close to concern for the environment and the poor that are gradually losing their identity and a sense of achievement in moving forward ;progress! Towards a preferred future! Facilitating for a brand affiliation built on integrity as a catalyst organization with legit certifications of frugal growth, that needs representation in India with ready basic infrastructure.

    Any pointers would be greatly appreciated.
    Hopefully,
