Travel can change the world. But first we need to change travel. Let’s get together and talk about how to make that happen.

Next up … Retravel Live: Protecting the Planet

We believe every day should be Earth Day! Help us keep the Earth Day conversation going by joining our founder, Bruce Poon Tip, along with three change-makers who are leading the charge to help address challenges being faced by our planet. From contamination of the world’s oceans, to the delicate balance between people and wildlife, to the growing single-use plastic crisis, our panelists will look at how travel can help alleviate some of these problems and what you, as a traveller, can do to make a difference.

Together, we’ll talk about how to identify reputable organizations, as well as what to do before your trip and what to avoid on the road to ensure your adventure has the best impact on our beautiful earth.

Sign up above to reserve your spot and submit a question for our panel. Also, please note that the conversation will take place in English.

You’re right, we did make up a word. But when you’re trying to sum up something that means a bunch of different things, sometimes you need to think outside the dictionary. At its core, Retravel means to reflect, rethink, and relearn how our travel choices impact the world, so we all can make more informed decisions and spread the most good. We’ve seen with our own purple eyes how travel can totally transform a community. Now we want to help the world see that too.
