2017 is the ninth year for Responsible Travel Week and Planeta.com's 18th year of innovative conferencing.
Technical note: In order to promote the event on Facebook, EventBrite insists on a physical location. The majority of the dialogue and presentations are decentralized around the world. That said, for those in Las Vegas, join our photo safaris and meetups announced during the week.
One of Planeta.com's tentpole events, Responsible Travel Week manifests our commitment toward effective communication and collaboration. Responsible travel is not an ethical dilemma of whether to have fun or be responsible. You can do both!
Crowdsourced and crowdfunded, Responsible Travel Week amplifies down-to-earth applications of noble concepts including responsible travel, conscious travel and ecotourism with the inexpensive social web. We have the tools in our hands to plan trips, to welcome visitors, to make the world a better place.
We expect our global conversation to take a great leap forward thanks to inspired participation. There are plenty of ways to get involved. Let's learn how to use new technologies AND how to combine high tech with face-to-face interaction.
Fall in love with responsible travel and let us know your plans and level of engagement. What participants get out of an event depends on what's put in. We start the year on a clean slate. We recommend budgeting time before, during and after the week to make the most of networking opportunities. If you introduce your interests and interact with others even a modest investment of time can pay off spectacularly with new ideas and contacts. Be inspired and be inspiring!
