Welcome to The Library


Building a library of information related to responsible tourism. From researchers, experts & indie publishers.

Everything you see on these “bookshelves” is available exclusively for members of travelkollekt.com – for FREE or for a small fee where 70% goes to the creator. The creator defines the price and the remaining 30% goes to Travel Kollekt to cover costs of runing the platform, paying the graphic designer, developer etc…

Why pay for content? People and companies who dedicate their time and knowledge to help other travelers act responsibly and respectfully while traveling should be rewarded. So keep in mind that by purchasing an article from Travel Kollekt you’re supporting the writers, local guides and organizations in making a meaningful revenue stream.

“…To be a responsible traveller you should “Learn as much as possible about your destination and take time to understand the customs, norms and traditions.”

– The UNWTO World Tourism Organization .

RESPONSIBLE TRAVEL INFO (pledges, manifests...)

At Travel Kollekt we have an ongoing open call for destination pledges, manifests and pracical information related to responsible tourism. We look at responsible travel as “Being environmentally, socially and culturally aware when you travel, understanding your affect on the places you visit and trying to make that affect a positive one.”  Any article from a credible source that fits the description from the UNWTO on how to be a responsible traveler is welcomed on our platform.

Note from our Founder:

At Travel Kollekt we work hard to curate a broad, yet relevant offering of responsible travel facts, official pledges & also inspiration. We want to partner with official institions, independent publishers and writers to deliver the best content.

But even more importantly we want to provide access to publish on our platform for researchers and experts in the know on how to tackle the challenges of responsible travel. This information will ALWAYS be free.
