Are you familiar with ‘philanthropic tourism’, this other way of ‘dedicated’ travel?

If you’re a philanthropist at heart and especially love to travel, you might be a fan of “philanthropy.” This neologism indicates a tourism approach in which people and solidarity are central, which is in line with regenerative tourism. We explain it to you.

Globetrotter or globetrotter at heart, you’re determined to travel after two years of the pandemic – context permitting. But there is no question of going to just any destination. As a slow-tourism enthusiast, you want to stay true to your values ​​and benefit from your commitment to solidarity.

For example, you’ve decided to join a rescue mission to protect sea turtles or volunteer at your next travel location to support a city or region recently hit by a natural disaster. If this is the case, know that you are giving in to “philanthropy”.

This neologism of the terms “philanthropy” and “tourism” is still very little used in France and yet it deserves recognition. In any case, the learning application Babbel has listed it as one of the terms of sustainable tourism to remember for 2022. “Philanthropy” simply denotes the desire to travel while taking a social or environmental action, for example by deciding to land in crisis whose economy is mainly based on tourism.

“Regenerative tourism”, another form of conscious tourism

In the same vein we also speak of regenerative tourism » or « regenerative tourism » in French, which consists in visiting a place and leaving it in a better condition than the one in which we found it. “It means recognizing that it is possible to go beyond mitigating negative impacts and generating positive social and environmental benefits for people and places when developing tourism actions”describes the Babbel app.

Clearing a natural place of its waste (beaches, parks, etc.), favoring encounters with locals or even opting for environmentally responsible accommodation are part of the approaches that are part of “regenerative” tourism.

Cities are also stepping up to promote this type of tourism. For example, Barcelona and Amsterdam have introduced a reduction in tourist accommodations (especially those offered on the well-known Airbnb platform), with the aim of curtailing mass tourism.
