At Planeterra, we know the places you visit during your travels can be life-changing. Whether you connect with the landscape, the people, the wildlife or just the energy of a certain spot, it can have a profound and lasting effect, and inspire a yearning to look after that place for years to come. Our mission is to reach out to committed travelers, organizations and global citizens like you to make a donation and invest in specific, sustainable solutions to support the places you love.
As individuals and members of the global travel community, we need to realize that many of these inspirational places face daunting challenges. These problems are neither simple, nor isolated. They range from environmental destruction and poor education, to deprived healthcare and severe unemployment, among many others. More often than not, we simply do not face these problems with the same severity in our home countries.
Creating a lasting impact on these social and environmental issues requires a long-term perspective and the ability to take on these issues simultaneously. This is why we have created four interconnected and complementary funds that are meant to get at the root of the issues.
We believe that by connecting people whose lives have been inspired to create change, with local people and organizations capable of enacting these changes, we can make a true and lasting impact. The power of the travel and tourism industry combined with the energy and inspiration of concerned global citizens can be the driving force needed to preserve and enhance the world’s most beautiful, but imperiled places.
