The Long Run was conceived as the flagship international programme of the Zeitz Foundation. What started as a responsible tourism initiative in the Laikipia region of Kenya, is now internationally renowned for encouraging accommodation providers to implement the 4Cs — Conservation, Community, Culture and Commerce. The Long Run hopes to encourage and mobilise individuals, organisations, corporations and governments to create and support positive change in favour of sustainability. It supports and promotes the coming together of conservation, culture, community and commerce not just for today, but for The Long Run.
Great tasting, excellent price, and fantastically sustainable – instead of Nespresso®, we recommend hotels use CRU Kafe's organic and fair-trade coffee.

Compostable CRU Kafe pods coming soon.
Through the Lexi Cinema in London, we learned about how a social enterprise can support sustainability – and we have visited South Africa's Sustainability Institute to explore how we can work together to create a more equitable society. Established in 1999 in Lynedoch Ecovillage, just outside of Cape Town, their work has been focussed on finding ways of living that sustain rather than destroy the ecosystem within which all society is embedded and the focus on children led to the creation of a crèche, a baby centre, and after-care programmes. Their partnership with the School of Public Leadership at the University of Stellenbosch built up their Masters and PhD programmes in Sustainable Development.
