DRIVING CHANGE THROUGH INNOVATION.
In 2018, the Booking Cares Fund was launched to champion non-profit sustainable travel projects which present new and unexpected solutions to reimagine the industry. With the Booking Cares Fund, we support projects that strengthen local communities, preserve and promote local culture, help disperse tourism and protect natural resources.
In 2019 we want to continue this support for non-profit sustainable travel projects. Projects can come from and take place all over the world, for example, representing universities, non-profits, research institutes and governments.
Those that present bold, ambitious plans to truly transform the travel industry will be invited to Amsterdam to develop their project plan with the support of Booking.com and have the chance to receive funding to fuel their progress over the course of the following year.
