For at least 20 years, community-based tourism has expressed a modern idea of responsible and inclusive tourism, which instead of extracting value from the territories, shares it with local people. Now Fairbnb.coop can put it into practice, even in your city or region.
The fairbnb.coop project is coming to #Canada, after being launched in #Europe as an ethical alternative to dominant platforms. This is not just a great achievement for our platform, but also proof that we can change tourism and help resolve some major issues for our local communities.
According to many researchers around the world, platforms like Fairbnb.coop can contribute to building a genuine sharing economy and, through sustainable tourism models like ours, help overcome the serious distortions of the vacation rental market.
In our recent summer campaign, we encourage people to go travel: for food, for becoming one with a foreign culture, for love, for the adventure and well, also for the… WOW. But what are those WOW moments during our travels? And more importantly: How do we discover them?
The consequences of the pandemic will not be enough to return them to their inhabitants, if we do not put a brake on a market that is just waiting to return to the status quo ante. But normality was a problem and the solution could come from below, from the networks of communities who propose self-regulating sustainable tourism models, like Fairbnb.coop.
With our Community Powered Tourism we can make our contribution to achieving the SDGs – Goal 11, Sustainable cities and communities, which concerns all those who live in the cities or would like to visit them.
