Responsible Travel Week 2017
One of our social web challenges for Responsible Travel Weekis to learn how to make the most of live video and livestreaming. Bottom line if you want to make the most of the responsible travel movement, don't be a wallflower. We encourage those in the field to create your own videos, and if you can, share them live. There are plenty of options, including Periscope, what I'd call the app of the year! Tips: http://planeta.wikispaces.com/periscope .

Content move request

We are still moving content (the classic features and resource guides) from Planeta.com to our new platform. If there is anything in particular missing that you'd like to see online, let Ron Mader know. One way is by making a 'content move request'

If you would like more responsibility and can help out with the move, that would be much appreciated.
