Airbnb has announced today, during the OECD Forum held in Paris, the 24 partners of the Community Tourism Programme, an Airbnb initiative that supports organisations that promote and foster sustainable and people-powered tourism. The €5m Community Tourism Programme, launched in 2017, forms part of our Office of Healthy Tourism.
Airbnb founder Nathan Blecharczyk showcased the projects set to receive €1.25 M which will be used to support unique, authentic and local travel experiences in destinations across Europe.
“I’m excited to see our community and partners continue Airbnb’s tradition of using travel and innovation to make communities stronger. We’ve been humbled and overwhelmed by the response to the Community Tourism Programme, and by the positive actions underway across the continent to retain the cultures, traditions and landmarks that make Europe’s diverse communities unique. To these innovators, I say that we are proud to support and invest in all you are doing.”Nathan Blecharczyk, Airbnb co-founder and Chief Strategy Officer
