Responsible Travel Week 2020


Please speak with Planeta.com host Ron Mader if you would like to actively participate in this global conversation. Volunteers requested for testing our video chats, privately and publicly.

What do we love about travel? We invite friends to join our free, week-long conversation, Responsible Travel Week, February 10-16, 2020.

90% of the conversation takes place online, documenting, previewing and recapping events around the world. 10% happens in the natural world – what you do. There are cool meetups in southern Nevada and other places to be announced.

Online we host real-time videos, Twitter chats, and collaborative editing sessions. Participants are asked to customize their own experiences. Create and announce your own meetups, workshops, soundwalks, and other creative endeavors. Fall in love with responsible, magical, and fabulous travel.

Participation is free and pay what you want. What we seek is meaningful interaction, aka engagement – announcements, creations, comments, retweets, upvotes, stars, and questions. If you have previously contributed to Planeta or worked with Ron Mader, please use the week to update us on your work.

Bottom line: The important thing here is to get people doing responsible travel as guests and hosts. We explore how it applies to local communities with the stories you hear and tell.

2020 is Planeta.com‘s 21st year of innovative, community-driven, online conferencing and 12th year hosting RT Week.

Registration opens in late January.

How this works
Participants are asked to walk the talk of responsible travel in their own communities and share lessons learned and questions to be asked as comments on this website as well as social web channels, including Facebook, Google Docs, Twitter, YouTube …

How do we increase the positive? If we identify the ills, we can propose solutions. As former Australian Prime Minister Paul Keating said, “It seems to me that if we can imagine the injustice we can imagine its opposite.”

The journey toward responsible travel means calling out irresponsible tourism.
