The Long Run’s mission is to create and support sustainable, ecologically and socially responsible destinations around the world for positive impact and sustainability, not just for today but for The Long Run. This is achieved through the holistic balance of Conservation, Community, Culture and Commerce (the 4Cs) in privately managed areas.

The Long Run is a platform to connect and support a global community of like-minded organisations that work tirelessly in leading the sustainability movement. It is built around membership, the 4C framework and the Global Ecosphere Retreats® (GER) standard that has been called “the world’s best standards for privately protected areas” (Dr. Jeff A. Langholz).
