Planeta.com spotlights local conservation and tourism connections around the globe. We’ve done so for nearly 30 years. The award-winning site is geared toward conscious hosts, travelers, and everyone in between.
Developed by Ron Mader in 1994 as a reporter’s digital notebook, Planeta.com continues to create and support engaging online conversation about conscious living and travel around the globe. We encourage readers / viewers to educate and prepare yourselves for future trips.
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 conscious, 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.
We are happy to partner with others.
Here’s what you can do next.
