Planeta.com has hosted more than twenty online conferences since 2000. This is an impressive archive and we would like to partner with universities in summarizing the dialogues and pursuing new avenues of collaboration.
Planeta.com readers are a mix of international travelers and locals. Both groups are keen to engage with one another but are often at a loss of how to do so. By virtue of our articles, forum, collaborative photo groups and now wiki, Planeta.com provides a venue for discussion and development of action plans.
Planeta.com provides direct access to travel operators, language schools, artisans and conservation groups. For professionals including park managers, conservationists, tourism associations and government leaders we offerworkshops and presentations.
Planeta.com spotlights what is local across the globe. We work toward decentralizing communication by encouragingengagement – active participation and reciprocity – among key players, including locals and visitors.
