The Altruistic Traveller Podcast:

Established in 2003 by global adventure travel company G Adventures’ founder, Bruce Poon Tip, Planeterra is a non-profit organisation that has contributed millions of dollars towards projects in areas of social enterprise, healthcare, conservation, and emergency response.

In this episode, host Bianca Caruana speak with Alanna Wallace – Planeterra’s Program & Communications Manager. We discuss Planeterra’s strategy to empower community tourism businesses to create sustainable livelihoods and how in the midst of a pandemic, Planeterra has helped their partners cope with the complete halt in global travel, and loss of customer base.

Many projects around the world have been left without an income as global travel stopped entirely during the COVID-19 pandemic. Now, communities need assistance to rebuild and recover from months without income. Planeterra has been able to provide grants to help with emergency needs, and also to build resilience for community tourism businesses and those that rely on them.

In the episode, Alanna shares how the organisation has raised tens of thousands of dollars for their partners and continue to fundraise much-needed dollars that will support their tourism partners through this difficult time. Listen in to hear about the work of Planeterra, stories of resilience and kindness and see how you can show your support.
