According to Fred Lizee, the NEC is a series of sustainable tourism challenges for the (new) generation of conscious travel professionals. The philosophy of this challenge is to federate a community of authentic adventure travel enthusiasts around a participatory project that will be carried by the explorers and professionals of tomorrow, aiming to ban standardized mass tourism. The main objective of the NEC is to put the new generation at the center of the stage and to make the voice of the students heard in order to build a more respectful adventure tourism and to envisage the future in a more positive and united way.
