Join us for Responsible Travel Week, February 13-19 and fall in love with responsible travel.

2017 is the ninth year for Responsible Travel Week and Planeta.com's 18th year of innovative conferencing. Since 2000 we've hosted dialogues about ecotourism, sustainable tourism, conscious travel.

One of Planeta.com's tentpole events, Responsible Travel Week manifests our commitment toward effective communication and collaboration.

Participation is free and Pay What You Want (PWYW). Registration for Responsible Travel Week is open.

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. Think of this as a way to move beyond silos and share the information and questions we have. We have the tools in our handhelds to plan trips, to welcome visitors, to make the world a better place.

Fall in love with responsible travel and let us know your plans and level of engagement. Schedule your own event or stage a viewing party. What participants get out of an event depends on what's put in. The week is the early-in-the-year wake-up-call that we all need on our journey toward digital literacy and ethical / conscious / responsible travel. Engaged participants shouldn't feel like you need to know everything. Be curious. Ask questions.

We recommend budgeting time before, during and particularly after the week to make the most of networking opportunities. Even a modest investment of time can pay off with new ideas and contacts. Be inspired and be inspiring!

Responsible travel is not an ethical dilemma of whether to have fun or be responsible. We can do both! Responsible Travel Week demonstrates the use of the social web as an integral and inexpensive means of communication and collaboration. At the very least we are documenting case studies around the world. It's time to own our definitions for responsible and sustainable tourism.

The event is mostly unorganized and it's by design. It is what we lovingly called an unconference in that the participants - you - create the agenda. Organize yourselves! On the plus side, this allows people to create events and live video tours on the fly. Keep an eye on the updated agenda/calendar.

Holding a workshop, tour or informal meetup? You don't need permission - just let us know the details and share via Facebook and Twitter.

We welcome financial donors, including individuals and institutions willing to invest in a more formal approach, including awards and workshops focused on digital literacy training. Let's learn to use new technologies, how to combine high tech with face-to-face gatherings.

Emails to Attendees

Greetings! I want to thank you again for taking the time to participate in Responsible Travel Week. We have healthy discussions taking part on the Facebook event page and via Twitter. If you haven't introduced yourself yet, please do so on both Facebook event page and Twitter.

I like to think of RT Week as an online workshop moreso than a conference. This should be a safe venue where you learn how to articulate your questions and interests using the social web. It won't work if you're a wallflower, so please create some posts and tweets and be generous enough to like, share, favorite, star and heart the week's responsible travel news of interest. If you have an event, book launch or conference related to RT, let us know.

> Before Responsible Travel Week


It's a new year and we begin Responsible Travel Week with a clean slate. Here are a few things you can do to prepare for a lively week.

Reflect on why you care about travel, what you love and what you would like to learn about responsible travel.

Register for the event using Eventbrite and please register for social web channels you'd like to master. Bookmark this page. Our wiki offers the helicopter view. If it makes it easier to access, make it a favorite on your browser or device of choice.

Make a wishlist of the things you'd like to do, people you'd like to meet, places you'd like to visit. If you're a traveler, what 'responsible travel' options are of greatest interest? If you're a local who receives visitors, what are you most proud of in your community you'd like to share?

Collaborate! In the backchannel (email, private face-to-face chats), talk this over with colleagues and make an announcement or presentation early in the week

4th European Ecotourism Conference #EuroEco17

Monday, February 13


Responsible Travel Week begins. Welcome back for our annual rolling conversation. Registration is open throughout the conference - http://rtweek17.eventbrite.com

Why have a Responsible Travel Week? Because most people who crave responsible travel, practice responsible travel, benefit from responsible travel — never use the words ‘responsible travel.’ This week bridges the gap in a global show and tell of what works and what doesn’t. It highlights what locals and visitors like best about each other — mutual respect.

The event is mostly unorganized and that's by design. It is what we lovingly called an unconference in that the participants - you - create the agenda. Organize yourselves! On the plus side, this allows people to create events and live video tours on the fly. You have to announce it, though and the week is designed to ncourage participants be more comfortable with the social web. It's the early-in-the-year wake-up-call that we all need on our journey toward digital literacy and ethical / conscious / responsible travel. Engaged participants shouldn't feel like you need to know everything. Be curious. Ask questions. Just include the #rtweek17 hashtag.

Since this is a mostly online event, your participation will be noted in terms of your likes, shares, retweets, hearts, stars whatever form of upvoting you're amenable to.

How this works: each day in the agenda, we will post the social web challenges for the day. You don't have to do everything, but you have to do something if you want to be engaged. Responses will liked, shared, embedded.

Having the event unfold online allows me the freedom to spend time with family. This week my father came home for hospice. My attention is divided, of course, and I'll be visiting these pages this coming week looking for honesty and inspiration. I'm dedicating my participation to John A Mader, who long before Facebook, had friends everywhere he traveled by respecting and being sociable with others.

Responsible Travel Week Day #2.

Happy Valentine's Day! The reason we hold Responsible Travel Week this week is to remind ourselves that responsible travel is that what we (a collective locals and visitors we) love about travel.

We also take the opportunity to ask some hard questions - like what is the impact of emissions created from long-haul travel?

For participants, our requests today are simple -- if you haven't introduced yourself and your plans for the coming year, please do so. If you want to announce an event or publication, do so. We'd also like to ask you to be generous. Please give out likes, retweets, shares of the #rtweek17 posts on Twitter and Facebook. Speak kindly of local players in the hospitality sector. And if you have a favorite artisan chocolate, let us know.

Transitions Abroad asked "What trends do you see happening in responsible travel within the current global political environment?" Responses were divided among 'continued evolution' and 'increase in demand.' I know I'm among the wishful thinkers who sees the protests and resistance of 2017 as a door opening to more empathic travel and tourism. Your thoughts?

2017 Aasta Vastutustundliku Turismi Nädal toimub 13 -19 veebruaril. Osalemiseks soovitame pühendada iga päev vähemalt ühe tunni.
Die Woche für Tourismus mit Verantwortung findet von 13 bis 19 Februar 2017 statt. Wir schlagen vor, mindestens eine Stunde pro Tag für die Teilnahme einzuplanen.

WHAT

Responsible Travel Week är en demonstration av sociala media som ett sätt att dokumentera utmaningar och framgångar av ansvarstagande turism.

Tänk på detta en unconference. Det finns ingen agenda, bara frågor av gemensamt intresse, en inbjudan till deltagarna själva att visa ansvarsfull turism i aktion.
Vastutustundliku turismi nädalal kasutame erinevaid social web vahendeid, et tutvustada vastutustundliku turismi näiteid ja edulugusid.

Mõelge sellele unconference. Ei ole kindlaksmääratud päevakorda, lihtsalt huvi pakkuvates kutse osalejad ise näidata vastutustundlik turism in action.
Die Woche für Tourismus mit Verantwortung ist eine Live-Demonstration der Möglichkeiten des Social Web zur Dokumentation der Erfolge und Herausforderungen einer verantwortungsbewussten Tourismus-Entwicklung.

Die Responsible Travel Week ist eine Unkonferenz. Es gibt keine feste Tagesordnung. Themen von gemeinsamem Interesse werden von den Teilnehmern diskutiert.

COST

Free + Pay What You Want (PWYW)
Kostenlos + Pay What You Want (PWYW).

WHERE

Responsible Travel Week äger rum på nätet och integrerar den digitala eran med jordnära god praxis i hela världen.
Vastutustundliku turismi nädal toimub internetis ning ühendab endas digitaalse ajastu võimalused ning vastutustundliku turismi kohalikud praktised näited kogu maailmast.
Die Woche für Tourismus mit Verantwortung erfolgt online und verbindet die digitale Welt mit praktisch erprobten Konzepten auf der ganzen Welt.

WHY

Ett av de viktigaste målen för Responsible Travel Week är att skapa ett incitament för kontinuitet - vi skulle verkligen vilja se uppdateringar från de senaste turism-konferenserna och eventen, och vi vill också gärna se en agenda för framtida evenemang. Ett annat viktigt mål är att stärka relationer med befintliga kontakter och få nya vänner!
Üks vastutustundliku turismi nädala olulisemaid eesmärke on innustada järjepidevust - soovime väga kuulda uudiseid hiljuti toimunud või eesseisvatest konverentsidest ja üritustest. Teine oluline eesmärk on tugevdada suhteid vanade sõpradega ja leida uusi sõpru!
Eines der wichtigsten Ziele der Woche für Tourismus mit Verantwortung ist es, Anreize für Kontinuität zu schaffen - wir würden wirklich gerne über die neuesten Tourismus Konferenzen und Veranstaltungen erfahren und freuen uns über Tipps zu Ereignissen in der Zukunft. Ein weiteres wichtiges Ziel ist es, Kontakte zu stärken und neue Freunde zu machen.

HOW

Vi kommer att använda Facebook, Flickr, Slideshare, Twitter och YouTube för att dokumentera metoder på turismområdet runt om i världen.

Var ärlig och var offentlig. Det här är den vecka där du får skrika ut till världen de bra saker du ser omkring dig. Skapa en lokal händelse. Stöd en lokal händelse. Gör en Foamboard. Skapa nya eller följ ämnen som du har intresse och passion för. Prata mat, parker, museum, prata volontärarbete, prata slowtravel / localtravel! Dessa samtal kan bredda och fördjupa vår dialog. Ha kul!
Me kasutame näidete esitlemiseks järgmisi vahendeid - Facebook, Flickr, Slideshare, Twitter ja YouTube

Ole aus ja avatud. See on nädal, kus sa saad teadvustada maailmale häid asju, mida sa näed enda ümber. Loo oma kohalik sündmus või toeta mõnd kohalikku sündmust. Tee "foamboard". Algata ja juhi arutelu teemal, mille osas tunned kirglikku huvi. Räägi kaasa haakuvatel teemadel nagu - kohalik toit, vabatahtlik tegevus, aeglane reisimine, kohalik reisimine.

History

2017 is Planeta.com's 18th year of online conferencing and the eighth year for Responsible Travel Week. We expect the conversations to take a great leap forward thanks to inspired participation from returning participants and those new to online conferencing and responsible travel. Take a peak at highlights from previous Responsible Travel Weeks in 2016, 2015, 2014, 2013, 2012, 2011, 2010 and 2009. Each year our discussion has continued to mature as the social web becomes easier to use and responsible travel becomes more trendy!

Back in 2000 we started tinkering with inclusive online conversations focusing on ecotourism. Each year since we've hosted online events. In 2017 we expect our global conversation to take a great leap forward thanks to inspired participation. There are plenty of ways to get involved with local and online events. Inclusion is the key point. We want to make sure that everyone's invited into broader and more localised conversations.

Questions and Answers (Q&A)

What is Responsible Travel? Responsible travel is treating others the way they wish to be treated. It's a variation on the Platinum Rule... it's also good manners. Rephrasing the Cape Town Declaration "Responsible travel creates better places for to live and better places to visit." Good friends agree that responsible travel is a must-have in the growing movement that connects visitors and locals.

What language does Responsible Travel Week use? The primary language of the event is English. We encourage participants to use other languages and to translate 'Responsible Travel' in the local lingo. When sharing news in any language, please use the #rtweek17 hashtag!

Who should participate? From travelers to locals, 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. For journalists, authors, bloggers and other media pros, this is an opportunity to scan beyond the horizon for stories and a way to share the news about features you've published. Active participants will be featured on this page and we will be happy to retweet your tweets, add stars to your Flickr photos, like your comments on Facebook, and give the thumbs up on YouTube videos.

Why participate? If you are curious about responsible travel, this event lets you explore the topic in depth. If you have an event, publication, workshop or meetup to announce, we can spread the word. Responsible Travel Week is a catalyst to get up to speed on specific topics AND social web channels. We welcome newcomers to Twitter and Facebook and blogs and wikis. If you prepare a bit and budget time during the week, you'll learn a lot. Exemplary performance is recognized and rewarded. Let's pool our talents and learn together. The more information we share, the easier it is for others to join these efforts.

How much time does it take to participate? This depends entirely on you. If you are presenting a program or tour, then there's considerable preparation time. If you are keen on learning what's taking place around the globe, then there will be time you need to budget for perusing the Twitter feed and watching the videos. If you are casually interested, then it's advisable to give yourself at least 15-30 minutes/day to consult this wiki page and the exterior links each day.

Who are partners? Partners are listed on this page as those who have expressed a commitment to Responsible Travel Week by staging local events, hosting photo safaris or indigenous language video championship. Bonus points to friends who help edit the wiki.

Other topics: child protection, hunting, public transportation, mission trips, sports tourism, e-waste and the proper disposal of batteries.

Donors
We are seeking donors for Responsible Travel Week to help cover the development of training seminars and webinars to carry the conversations forward. Contact Ron Mader for details.

How do participants document responsible travel? Photos and videos are ideal. Show us responsible travel in action. If you cannot create, curate!

I would like to organize a local event, but I don't have time during RT Week. What can I do? You can announce the event during RT Week or simply let others know that a local get-together is in the works. On Twitter, include the hashtag #rtweek17.

Can I volunteer? Editors help us update our directory of official Tourism Portals and reward the countries and cities that make responsible travel a priority. Find the links of specific information and share.

How does this event encourage collaboration? One of the goals of Responsible Travel Week is to encourage collaboration within local and regional communities. We need to find ways out of institutional silos and get people to share information. Toward this goal, we encourage participants to be generous in their words of praise and testimonials for others. It's blue sky thinking, but we'd like to replace finger pointing with recommending positive interactions. Keep an eye on our country contest as we compare how different nations fare when it comes to showcasing specific examples of responsible travel in action.

What's being updated on the Planeta Wiki? We ask editors of the Planeta Wiki to help edit the global review of tourism portals. Other pages we will be updating include volunteer, sami, tapas, Responsible Tourism in South Africa, Responsible Tourism in Cities, maya, parks, biodiversity. Instead of re-inventing the wheel, we'd like suggestions to help update our Who's Who resources of those working in the UK and in German-speaking Europe.

What is the role of cities and responsible travel? Responsible travel should be embedded within policies and part of the focus will be to create a snapshot of world cities including Las Vegas, USA, Cape Town and Mossel Bay, South Africa, Auckland, New Zealand and Oaxaca City, Mexico. This continues our work since 2011's Responsible Tourism in Cities Workshop.

Why an unconference? Simply put, traditional events have become too organized and boring. Participants discuss their own work or the talking points decided by the organizers. We think participants can organize themselves and the unconference is the ideal approach. Traditional conferences are overly scripted without opportunities to engage one another. While they take place at a specific venue, they fail to engage remote participants watching online. We created the Responsible Travel Week as an inexpensive way to broaden and deepen conversations about travel and tourism. Ron will be updating his blog and storifying tweets about Responsible Travel Week. The point is to explore responsible travel in all its manifestations using the social web.

Can anyone create a local event? Yes! Get people involved and learn together what 'responsible travel' is all about. Organize what you think would work best and simply. Leave the complicated events for later on in the year.

Can I announce news regarding a responsible travel business or tour? Yes! You can talk up your own business or the business of colleagues you respect.

Who can use the #rtweek17 hashtag? Anyone can use the #rtweek17 hashtag to announce relevant resources, videos, podcasts and upcoming events and tours. We recommend that the #rtweek17 hashtag be used to document what you find inspiring during RT Week

Does the hashtag only work on Twitter? Hashtags are most popularly used on Twitter and will be used to help us curate our favorite tweets in the Storify feature on RT Week (https://storify.com/ronmader/rtweek17). This past year hashtags have begun to be used on Facebook and other channels. On Flickr you can use the hashtag to identify posters or relevant photos. Please tag presentations on Slideshare and posts on Wordpress.

Digital Literacy: Core Skills
Before RT Week begins, we ask participants to brush up on digital literacy skills and assess their own level of competence on digital channels: email, Facebook, Flickr, LinkedIn/Slideshare, Twitter, Wikispaces, Wikipedia, YouTube.

Please note that we do not expect that all participants have awesome, state of the day communication skills. Far from it! One of the goals of RT Week is to promote intergenerational connections and connections with friends and colleagues who are most comfortable with analog media. That said, the conference as a whole thrives on participants being digitally articulate. We're not in the same room, folks, so if you want to be heard, you'll need to learn to write an email, a Facebook status update and a tweet. The social web works with repetition and redudancy.

Please answer the following questions yes or no. Are you able to
Save links on your web browser?
Read and send email?
Tweet?
Retweet?
Edit a wiki.
Periscope
Take a photo with your phone?
Upload a photo from your phone?
Like 'Responsible Travel' on Facebook?
