Lighting the Path to a Better Tomorrow
For nearly a century, the Globus family of brands has shed light on the world’s most fascinating places and people – allowing travellers to bask in their glory, intrigue, and wonder. As we explore ancient pathways, historic hallways, and storied sidewalks of the world around us, we gain deeper knowledge, compassion, and understanding of the world and its people than ever before.
By partnering with like-minded organisations that care for our planet and the people and places we cherish, we’re committed to playing our part in advancing causes through conservation, preservation, and humanitarian partnerships.
While a lighthouse may stand alone, we can come together to light up the world’s exceptional places – and extraordinary faces. Enter the Cosmos Lighthouse Project – an illuminating initiative where we can all come together to tread lightly and give generously for the globe’s greater good. Cosmos, along with sister companies Globus and Avalon Waterways, invites our travellers and partners to help us in supporting causes that provide for a more sustainable planet and a brighter tomorrow.
Additionally, Cosmos team members take pride in being active participants in the travel community, spearheading and participating in dozens of volunteer programs and events.
IN THE SPOTLIGHT:
The Australia Zoo Wildlife Hospital
Australia’s unique and much-loved wildlife is disappearing at an alarming rate. With help from donations from across the globe, the Australia Zoo Wildlife Hospital gives injured wildlife a second chance. One of the world’s largest animal hospitals, in one year, approximately 10,000 animals are brought here for lifesaving treatment, playing a vital role in saving Australia’s native species.
Keeping the world in its best light.
While nothing is more exciting than tracing the paths of historic legends, doing so with the most minimal footprint excites us even more. We make every effort to conserve and preserve in each destination we visit by helping to protect the waterways, wild places, and wildlife by supporting and shining a light on organisations that do the same.
Keeping the blue planet green.
We love caring for the world just as much as we love sharing it with you! By booking a Cosmos tour, you’re helping us do just that! When you travel with Cosmos, we contribute to environmental organisations that work to improve the health of our planet. Travel easy knowing we’ve made a donation to The Ocean CleanUp and Trees4Travel—two leading champions of cleaner water and air. Enjoy the anticipation and excitement of your upcoming adventure as you review your travel documents, while making a difference in the world we discover together. You can also make a donation of your own to Trees4Travel or The Ocean Cleanup to help make the world even greener!

Helping the communities of the world shine.
It’s not just the splendid landscapes and landmarks that make travel so rewarding – it’s the unique people we meet along the way and the cultures they hold dear. We are dedicated to protecting, respecting and supporting the extraordinary communities of the world as well as improving the individual lives within them. The measure of the Lighthouse Project’s success? The megawatt smiles we see along the way.
The people-focused organisations we support include:
Reflecting on the past; Brightening the future.
The parks, palaces, museums and monuments we enjoy today are the result of previous generations passionately committed to preservation. By way of the Lighthouse Project, we aim to pay it forward – staying light years ahead of preservation – so that future generations can enjoy the same glorious places to relax, renew and reflect.
