DREAMING OF TRANSFORMING THE
The Booking Cares Fund is Booking.com’s €2 million fund programme to
champion changemakers in sustainable tourism.
The Booking Cares Fund champions sustainable tourism changemakers in their search for new and unexpected solutions that reimagine the tourism and travel space. With the Fund we support projects that strengthen local communities, preserve & promote local culture, help disperse tourism and protect natural resources.
Changemakers can come from all over the world, representing universities, non-profits, research institutes and governments. Pioneers with bold, ambitious ideas to truly transform the sustainable tourism industry can apply for grants between €100k and €250k.
People who are developing solutions or projects that transform the travel industry.
Creative, goal-setting visionaries. Problem-solvers that are capable of engineering their visions into reality.
Changemakers who explore new avenues and are eager to experiment. When they fail, they capture and share their learnings so others can benefit.
People who share our belief that technology and innovation can accelerate change within the travel sector.
The project should have the potential to produce meaningful change that can scale, be backed by data
and produce measurable results.
