Announcement: Starting in May Planeta.com and GetLocalFlavor.com host a national conversation taking inventory of where the USA stands in terms of responsible travel / Indigenous tourism / ecotourism / agritourism / sustainable travel and what we would like to see improve in 2015. Is it time for new associations / organizations / working groups?

Responsible Local Travel in the USA explores examples of social and environmental responsibility within the US travel sector. To us, this means bringing together innovative people with localist values who are naturally creating a better world. Ron Mader of Planeta.com (celebrating an incredible 20 years on the world wide web) and tourism activist Deborah McLaren of GetLocalFlavor.com (author, consultant, founder of numerous responsible tourism organizations and passionate localist) will co-host a series of live hangouts to bring together individual leaders, organizations and communities in the USA.

We will spotlight local businesses and organizations – and showcase and use crowdsourced documents, surveys and other online gadgets to broaden the discussion. Special efforts are taken to make this as transparent and as open access as possible. We are betting that these conversations generate both short- and long-term benefits and actions. Our first hangout: Friday, May 1 May 2015: Responsible Local Travel in the USA @GetLocalFlavor @ronmader #localtravelusa   Details on the conference hub: http://planeta.wikispaces.com/localtravelusa
