Is it time for a meeting, gathering, party, unconference focusing on responsible, conscious local travel? Friends are suggesting a summit in Oaxaca de Juárez in September to get a handle on the gamut of niche audiences and how to connect using social media. Any interest?
Oaxacan friends host grassroots events, food tastings, walks and sporting tournaments but often not knowing how to connect to ‘tourism.’ The idea would be to introduce them to Ethan Gelber and the Local Travel Movement and Anna Pollock and Conscious Travel and vice-versa. I suspect we’ll have some zipcasts and google+ hangouts in which anyone can participate from around the world.
Those who cannot join us in person are encouraged to create (and communicate) your own local travel / conscious travel event.
