In April, MD Julie Cheetham and Sustainability Content and Support Lead Nwabisa Mjoli were delighted to accept Weeva’s first Responsible Tourism Award for “Addressing Climate Change” at WTM Africa in Cape Town.
The new, disruptive data management technology also made it to the last three finalists from thousands of applicants for both the UNWTO Awake Tourism Challenge and the Business Travel Awards Europe for “Achievement in Sustainability: data and reporting”.
Weeva was also proud to sponsor the Sustainability Stage at the We Are Africa Open House in Cape Town in May, which included a special Africa edition of the “Funny Old World” podcast hosted by eco-guru Juliet Kinsman (Sustainability Editor of Conde Nast Traveller UK) and media pundit Simon London.
In this bonus episode they drew interesting insights from both experts and new voices in sustainable travel on topics including:
Why you cannot shame the luxury traveller into being more sustainable
How to spot the difference between marketing ploys and genuine action
Tell don’t sell — why stories matter in today’s media landscape
The lessons luxury tourism properties can take from manufacturing lines

Julie Cheetham, Managing Director of Weeva, also presented and facilitated an interactive sustainability masterclass at the Sustainable Travel & Tourism Agenda (STAS) conference alongside Dr Anne-Kathrin Zschiegner, Director of The Long Run, hosted at the Serena Beach Resort & Spa in Mombasa, Kenya from 8-9 June 2023.
