What we’d love participants to do during Responsible Travel Week


All travel and tourism can be more conscious and responsible. Let’s figure out what to do now.

Responsible Travel Week, February 12-18, is conducted online and around the globe. Hashtag: #rtweek18

What we mostly desire is engagement – your questions, your contributions, your news of upcoming events, publications and meetups. 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.

Facebook Live: We are going to block out the 8-9am Las Vegas (Noon-1pm NYC) hour for Responsible Travel Week #rtweek18 (February 12-18) preparation and private chats with friends. There will also be live video streaming on our Facebook page — https://www.facebook.com/planetadotcom — and when we figure out how, some actual conversations via FacebookLive.
