As a leading voice in socially responsible travel and lifestyle, World Footprints explores diverse topics such as modern slavery, film, music, politics, sustainability and travel intelligence as we travel the planet together. On World Footprints you’re just as likely to hear from conservationists such as Jack Hanna and Bobby Kennedy, Jr. as you are from survivors of human trafficking, distinguished historians, Oscar-nominated film directors and human rights advocates. You’re also likely to find World Footprints behind the wheel of a race car, in the field digging for dinosaur bones, at White House events and Olympic Games.
