First Internatational Travelers' Philanthropy Conference Proceedings

Available from: CREST, by CD-ROM ($15)

Abstract: In April 2004, CREST (then CESD) hosted a major conference on Travelers' Philanthropy at Stanford University, in California. This conference brought together nearly 80 tour operators, UN officials, academics, foundation representatives, and NGOs to discuss how to best harness tourists' interest in giving back to the often impoverished communities that they visit. Through a combination of "time, talent, and treasure," participants learned, there are many ways to work constructively with host communities. However, poorly planned projects can result in unintended negative consequences. This packet of conference proceedings includes a CD-ROM of powerpoint presentations, bios for conference presenters, a directory of existing philanthropic activities, and more.
