Globetrotting for Good: Enter the Conde Nast Traveler Challenge

A snapshot of the entries so far. Click on the image to enter the challenge.

by Dorinda Elliott

Condé Nast Traveler has joined Ashoka, the global network of social entrepreneurs, for the Condé Nast Traveler Challenge, a series of online competitions to drum up great ideas about how travelers and the travel industry can do good in the world. The first challenge: How can we best promote the idea of global citizenship through travel?

So far we have received 40 entries from 16 countries. It's fascinating stuff -- from a social activist in Namibia who wants to launch a Web site connecting community projects with travel companies, to a student who wants to promote international peace parks and a financial adviser in China who suggests that we should pay Travel Offsets to a human rights organization every time we visit a country with a repressive government. The competition is closing soon, so please take a look and add your own ideas. And vote on your favorites: The winner will be highlighted in the September issue of Condé Nast Traveler!
