CSI & Sustainability
Awarded Silver status by the Wilderness Foundation's Green Leaf Environmental Standards, Tourvest Destination Management not only protects the environment but uplifts people, promoting real grassroots socio-economic development. Event Dynamics is committed to sustainable development in three ways, environmentally, economically and socially.
Subscribing to responsible tourism, we are committed to reducing our carbon footprint; recycling where we can, adopting innovative green practices and supporting truly empowered procurement.
As a group, Tourvest has made the strategic decision to concentrate its CSI focus, thus making a meaningful contribution to one organisation, rather than diluting its charity efforts across several disparate charities. The organisation that Tourvest has ‘adopted’ is Afrika Tikkun.
Afrika Tikkun is dedicated to investing in education, health and social services for children, youth and their families through its community Centres of Excellence and strategic partnerships.
Tourvest Destination Management holds an Annual Golf Day, the profits of which are all donated to Afrika Tikkun. Our support does, however go deeper than just making financial donations; Tourvest holds an annual event on Nelson Mandela Day when members from all of the various Tourvest Business Units get together and spend 2 days building new homes in Diepsloot, one of Johannesburg’s poorest informal settlements.

Empowerment informs our philosophies and practices, contributing to the transformation of our business as well as long-term stability and growth in the tourism industry.
Tourvest Holdings is a level 3 contributor to broad-based BEE.
Tourvest Learnership Academy
Leading the way in 2006, Tourvest created a learnership academy where previously disadvantaged individuals could equip themselves with industry relevant skills. Through our accredited training provider, Tourvest Destination Management Academy provides a practical learning environment for students. Coaching & mentoring takes place at TDM’s Head Office. Each student has their own mentor who shares their experience and assists in translating knowledge into valuable workplace skills. The TDM Academy’s unique education-to-employment model contributes to both skill development and job creation.
The chamber made significant in roads into the rural areas Dambuza and Manyeseni in KZN, Vhembe in Limpopo and Lusikisiki in the Eastern Cape in order to recruit 29 youth for a Learnership Programme. The learners are studying towards the National Certificate in General Travel L5 and were relocated from their respective provinces to Gauteng in Johannesburg for the duration of the Learnership programme. The learners are currently placed with 3 Travel organisations including Tourvest. The total CATHSSETA investment towards this learnership project was over R2 million.
