Third challenge on how to travel2change

How can you travel with a purpose? This is the question travel2change is asking individuals and nonprofits for the third challenge, which encourages participants to finish the sentence “I travel2…”. Travel2change’s goal is to connect travelers and locals in order to create trips that benefit communities around the world. Three winning ideas will be rewarded with $500 to go on a trip to make their idea happen.

The challenge is open to submissions from around the world. The aim is to combine travelers’ passions with the purpose of benefitting the communities they visit. “We seek to inspire travelers to collaborate with local communities for meaningful change. The current challenge is a starting point for travelers to plan a trip that creates a positive impact for the communities they visit.” explains Thomas Kohler, founder of travel2change.

 

To enter, travelers must go to the travel2change Facebook page and join the challenge by finishing the sentence “I travel2…”, uploading a photo and describing their idea in greater detail. The deadline for submitting ideas is January 31. After public voting a jury of volunteer travel experts will decide on the winning idea based on its creativity, effectiveness, impact, feasibility and sustainability.
