Planeta.com spotlights what is local around the globe.

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

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

We aspire toward Open Access, Open Education and Open Journalism.

We are seeking practical suggestions in the realm of eco-friendly, people-friendly and place-friendly travel.

We are happy to partner with others.
