Inspirock to Help “Voluntourists” Plan Their Trips

Exciting news coming from Inspirock: In the coming months, we will be helping IIPT (International Institute for Peace Through Tourism) and Skål (International Association of Travel and Tourism Professionals) in their effort to launch their International Ambassador for Peace Campaign. The project is in its early stages and many details are still being worked out.

What we can tell you right now is that Inspirock will help design an interactive new website that will eventually serve as a platform for sharing stories and interacting with one another. Read more below about how you can travel to make a difference. If you know of any other voluntourism organizations you would like to see Inspirock work with, please use our feedback form to tell us about them.
