“Unconference” 2011 Responsible Tourism Week: Feb 14-18

Posted by deborahmclaren on January 18, 2011

2011 Responsible Tourism Week: Feb 14-18

Fall in love with responsible tourism. The dates are set for our next Responsible Tourism Week. Our unconventional, online unconference takes place Feb 14-18, 2011. Details:

Background: Responsible Tourism Week is a fun mash-up exploring down to earth applications of noble concepts including responsible tourism, the local travel movement and ecotourism with practical and inexpensive Web 2.0 technologies. Take a peak at what we accomplished this year via the Planeta Wiki and on Slideshare.

We are seeking partners and financial sponsors.

Simply put, this online unconference is an excellent way to broaden and deepen our dialogue about sustainable practice and tourism. The event encourages participants to articulate their core values and the way they put noble ideas into practice. It’s an opportunity to introduce new events, tours and research projects as well as an opportunity to summarize recent events. Yes, it’s a high-tech, but we also promote the foam board. For those who can keep track of a hashtag, it’s a new window to the world!

How to participate? You can start now by documenting the stories you’d like to share. In particular we will highlight photos on Flickr, tweets on Twitter, videos on YouTube and recommended blogs and wikis. This year we will start to feature tours using Gowalla and Foursquare. Check out the toolbox!

The talking points for RT 2011will be updated on the wiki. Of special interest in 2011 will be the role of responsible tourism in forests and cities. Join us!

Last chance to participate in Responsible Tourism Week
http://planeta.wikispaces.com/rtweek2010

We wrap up the formal week on Friday. You’re welcome to participate by posting a short message on Twitter with the hashtag #rtweek2010

Share an example of responsible tourism in your work and/or be generous and point the way to work you admire. We’ve had some great participation from ITBW partners and look forward to weaving together the examples of responsible travel and indigenous tourism.

Kind regards, Ron Mader

Climate Change – Global Warning?

Posted by deborahmclaren on December 8, 2009

I’m pasting in this information from Ron Mader. He’s calling for direct action.

…from world leaders on climate change was published today by 56 newspapers around the world in 20 languages. (Thank, C!)

Great, right? Sorta. What would have been cooler (sorry, bad pun) would be if the project had been developed with openness and transparency. The Guardian has a blog which accepts comments, but that’s a nice touch after the fact. For this to be a bigger wow – in terms of making use of current technologies and putting into practice collaborative work, it would be good to see process. Use Web 2.0: Make it a wiki. If you want to limit the writers, that’s fine, but make the process open.

Calling for direct action, here’s your turn! We are seeking climate art, reports, posters in World Climate, a group on Flickr.
