About Planeta.com

Planeta.com spotlights local conservation and tourism connections around the globe.

Developed by Ron Mader in 1994 as a reporter’s notebook, Planeta.com pioneers online coverage of conscious living and travel around the globe. The award-winning site is geared toward conscious hosts, travelers, and everyone in between.

We work toward decentralizing communication by encouraging engagement – active participation and reciprocity – among key players, starting with locals and visitors (aka stakeholders).

For independent travelers, we provide practical suggestions in the realm of eco-friendly, people-friendly and place-friendly travel.

For locals, we amplify and like / share / retweet / embed tweets showing your work and passions. We also provide workshops and tipsheets showing how to make the most of the social web and old-fashioned analog media.

Planeta.coms aspire toward Open Access, Open Education and Open Journalism.

We are happy to partner with others.

Here’s what you can do next.
