Social Impact Detours: a walking tour with social impact
Diana Salingova, founder of Detours, originally moved to Zurich for love and has already lived here for five years. All of her favourite places in Zurich have got something to do with summer, like, for example, the Stäfa Island in Wollishofen or getting into the Limmat river at the Dynamo youth club. Wouldn’t we love to enjoy the sun and go swimming right about now!
Diana has been working in the tourism industry for many years. During the pandemic, she also witnessed the dark side of tourism. This led her to think about how to rework tourism into a force for good to raise awareness about social issues and to give something back to the local changemakers and the community as a whole. The result? “Detours Zurich” — walking tours with social impact!
