2014 Responsible Travel Week

Fall in love with responsible travel February 10-16 as hosts our sixth annual Responsible Travel Week, a week-long unconference that kicks off 2014 in fine style. A great plus: admission is free and there's no jet lag! The event takes place online and around the world through a series of local events organized by participants. Sponsorships are available.

What is Responsible Travel? Responsible travel is treating others the way they wish to be treated. Good friends agree that responsible travel is a must-have in the growing movement that connects visitors and locals.

Who should participate? Everyone's invited! For visitors, this event is an opportunity to see where to go, how to travel and who to meet. For local tourism leaders and travel businesses, this is free advertising and an opportunity to learn good practices from around the globe.

Why participate? If you are curious about responsible travel, this event lets you explore the topic in depth. It's a catalyst for many to get up to speed on the off-the-shelf social web channels. Exemplary performance will be recognized and rewarded.
