We welcome a new member: Socialbnb


Statement socialbnb: 

socialbnb is a young social enterprise that connects travelers with local communities to promote cultural exchange, while supporting local social projects. Our mission is to create a sustainable and responsible tourism industry that benefits both travelers and local communities. We believe that tourism has the potential to positively impact the world, but it must be done in a way that is respectful and protective of human rights.

We take a number of measures to ensure that our platform and the experiences we offer are aligned with our commitment to human rights. Firstly, we work with local partners to identify and support social projects that benefit the communities in which our guests stay. For this, we have a strict selection process for our hosts to ensure they provide safe accommodation and impactful experiences that has a positive benefit on local communities and the destination. We provide our hosts with trainings and encourage them to share their knowledge of local customs and traditions with guests.

Finally, we actively promote responsible tourism practices among our guests by providing them with information and resources to help them make informed and ethical travel choices. This includes information on sustainable tourism practices, cultural sensitivity, and responsible volunteering.

We believe that our efforts align with the goals of the Roundtable of Human Rights in Tourism and we are eager to learn from and collaborate with other organizations that share our commitment to protecting human rights within the tourism industry. We look forward to the opportunity to contribute to the roundtable discussions and learn from the experiences of others.
