We believe we can transform travel. And we want to come together to do it!
As a community of tours, are creating change in one of the ecosystems and industries that need more change: travel and education. Therefore, we want to invite you to spend some time sharing our stories with a larger ecosystem where we are planning to invite hotels, universities, restaurants, tourism boards, press and anyone we can think of that can benefit from this knowledge exchange. The idea is to hold this event on November 18th, and depending on the content and what we want to share, it would most likely be during the morning. Interestingly, November 18th also marks the end of the Smart City Week in Barcelona, where this year’s focus is supposed to be “Smart Citizens”. Perhaps we can get some traction on that side and this event can be as big or as small as we want.
Then, on November 19th, we believe one of the key values we can offer as a community is the knowledge exchange between the work we do. There is so much wisdom and different skills within this group that it is important we take time out to share, reflect, learn and think about how to grow together, how we can have more impact. It is also important that we connect physically and strategize towards our larger goal. This would be a more internal gathering, some time for “us”.
How will this happen?
With all of “us”. While Authenticitys will be hosting the event, and as a trained facilitator I am able to design the methodologies and processes for this meeting to be quite unique, it would be great if we could have some volunteers helping with different aspects of the event! We can create two task forces, one for the November 18th launch, and one for the November 19th internal gathering. We can work virtually, and it would definitely be more fun to co-create this together, as this way we can make sure we can take advantage of the time we spend together.
Of course, we will make some time as well for you to enjoy Barcelona and perhaps even join in some of the tours we host in the city with our partners!
I am personally super excited about this possibility. I have already talked about it with some of you, and just to know the magic that can happen when we get together makes me smile!
What do to now?
