This event, supported by the United Nations World Tourism Organization, will feature the most beautiful, purpose-driven people involved in making traveling a more fun, meaningful and green adventure for everyone.
Think organizations like Crooked Trails, which is helping people better understand the impact of travel on the world’s cultures and ecosystems through education and sustainable travel programs supporting indigenous communities around the world.
Also, you will love hearing from the awesome team behind Visit.org! These guys make socially conscious travel easy, fun and accessible to millions of travelers worldwide. They partner with and support local non-profits and other impactful organizations to feature the best immersive travel activities out there. Through them, you can book half or multi-day trips or have a off-the-beaten path adventure you (and your wallet!) can feel good about, as tour revenue is 100% invested back into the local community. How cool is that.
The people from Grayl, who brought us this amazing Purifier water bottle that we love so much, are sponsoring the whole event!
And of course, Nomad Traveler will be present at the party! We’ll talk about what you should put in your “Ethical suitcase”, aka how to pack sustainably! Discover the vast and dynamic world of ethical travel gear with us. Learn how easy it is to pack an ethical and responsible suitcase. From leggings made of recycled water bottles to versatile backpacks to water filters that clean out 99.99% of the nasties, we’ll be presenting easy solutions for every packing problem. So if you’re into sustainable travel as much as we are, come hang out with us and get involved with the sustainable travel tribe! #ITMSUMMIT17

International Women's Day : She belonged to no man and no city 0
Being a female traveler today is experiencing a large amount of harassment and abuse while travelling alone, but also being told that we are to blame, because travelling alone is a risky, frivolous pursuit for women. This is International Women’s Day and it’s time to #BeBoldForChange. Traveling as a feminist is becoming a necessity, because women travelers around the world are tired of sexism and micro-agressions. These comes in many forms.
This day is dedicated to all the women who :
Had to endure 8 hours flights when the male passenger sitting next to you just brushed your leg for the fourth time in five minutes in a forced conversation you had no desire to participate in and all you wanted was out.
Can’t handle men shouting at them to cover up, and following them, and saying things to them, and staring at them like a piece of meat.
Put up with creepy sex tourists.
Ignored an offensive comment to avoid angering a man or endangering yourself.
Really wanted to take that trip alone without the fear of being punished for it.
Laughed off an inappropriate come-on at the hostel bar.
Faced judgment and criticism from people in their life who thought they should settle down and have children.
Swallowed their anger when being belittled, condescended to or completely ignored by the locals.
Have been slut-shamed for having sex with a pure stranger in a foreign country.
International Women’s Day is important because :
British Airways staff are no longer able to wear trousers unless part of the long-haul only team.
The concept of a lone female rural backpacker is incomprehensible to some.
Trip Advisor decided that sexism is an irrelevant travel complaint
Many people question how ‘safe’ it is for women to travel alone.
A collective of sexist media outlet thinks women are irresistible objects for their pleasure.
A woman being detained and and called a sex worker at the Border for carrying condoms is still a thing.
The culturally acceptable term for solo male traveler is “adventurer.” No one calls him a “solo male traveler”.
Some travel sites still seem hold an idea that all female travelers want luxurious hotel resorts complete with swimming pools, and to pay for travel guides rather than find their own way around with a map.
We are celebrating women who are building better futures for themselves by changing how travel affects our world. We are honoring women who :
Decided to quit, pack their bags, and travel the world on their own in spite of fear, because “travelling is freedom, and Freedom has no gender”.
She was free in her wildness. She was a wanderess, a drop of free water. She belonged to no man and no city. – Roman Payne.

Travel with a conscience ? How to find your purpose on the road. 0And my gut whispered one deeper question that roaming around could never answer for me : now that you know everything is possible, what kind of life will you CHOOSE for yourself ? What if finding your purpose could take you somewhere you’ve never been before?

Why choose to live your own way and travel the world 0
As I grew up in this weird and stressful society, I often asked myself: why do people accept to live this way? I wonder if they even know that there are a million other possibilities in life. We are so used to do the same things over and over and over again… We begin to feel so comfortable in our life that the simple idea of leaving our habits is so freaking scary. But you know what? Just try. Try it once and you will see.
