Join us for Responsible Tourism Week (May 17-21). Every day this week we are compiling an index of key resources that come to our attention. Participating in RT Week is simple. Just post a message on Twitter and include the hashtag #rtweek2010

Share examples of responsible tourism that you have personally experienced. Be generous. Talk about other people’s work that you respect. Ideally it would be great to see you post at least one message a day on Twitter.



Summary – We are heading to the end of RT Week. Yesterday a record number of friends helped edit the Planeta Wiki and we had a growing number of tweets and retweets on Twitter! Thanks again to everyone for sharing news about responsible tourism where you live and pointing out the good work of others.

Is the local dialect in your place part of the tourism attraction?

If we really want to minimize the impacts of travel, shouldn’t we stop traveling?

We are powerful beyond measure
