Joining forces to turn travel into impact

Planeterra helps local organizations and communities use tourism as a catalyst to improve people’s lives, protect their natural environments, and celebrate their culture. Put simply, it is a better kind of tourism. Improving the lives of community members as they provide travellers with better experiences. Planeterra is more than just an agent of change and driver of communal well-being. They are tested and trusted builders of self-esteem and pride. Pride that we can all share as well as take pleasure in – from uplifting communities through tourism.

Yay – we’ve partnered!

We are very excited to announce that we have partnered with Planeterra. It’s the leading non-profit organisation in community based tourism.  

Planeterra works on the goal of transforming travel into impact by supporting and uplifting community tourism. By strengthening community tourism around the world, economic opportunities are created, places are protected, and cultures are celebrated through travel. 

The partner projects of socialbnb will benefit from different trainings and resources via the Planeterra Global Community Tourism Network to support in creating a sustainable touristic offer.

As Planeterra is working with many community based projects worldwide, we will also include as many as possible on the socialbnb platform to make them visible and bookable for a big audience.  

“We’re excited to be expanding our work to include the accommodations on socialbnb’s platform. We are also going to be working with the socialbnb team to introduce them to community tourism enterprises that we are already connected to – providing our community partners with access to more travellers in the future, while helping socialbnb expand their important platform.”

By providing travellers with access to meaningful experiences that gives back and empowers local people, while protecting the environment!
