Travel Better Programme
As it is sometimes difficult to know what the best travel choices are or understand how a traveler can make a difference, Sustainable Travel International have set out to help travelers by creating the Travel Better Club, a community of passionate globetrotters, curious culture seekers, and bold adventurers all committed to making a difference by traveling better.
With generous support from G Adventures, the first founding sponsor, the Travel Better Club and online learning program were soft launched on World Tourism Day in September 2016. (1) Travel Better Online Training Course is a 30 minute training that introduces the learner to the basics of sustainable travel, including how to make choices – from the hotels to book to the meals to eat – that more positively impact the people and visited places. Upon completion, the learner get a Travel Better certificate. (2) Facebook Community: One of the best ways to learn about sustainable travel is by sharing experiences and exchanging ideas with like-minded travelers. The Facebook Community provides recommendations from fellow members and inspire next adventures in the Travel Better Club Facebook group. More than 1000 travelers have completed the program since this soft launch. Travelers who successfully complete the course and pass a brief knowledge check receive a Travel Better certificate and can activate their membership in the Travel Better Club to receive benefits from sponsors and supporters.
