Travel to Hawaii Like You Give a Damn: What's Your Idea?

Travel2change is looking for people to share their passion and ideas to travel to Hawaii with a purpose.

While Hawaii evokes tropical breezes sifting through palm trees and oceans with picturesque sunsets, the island is not a paradise for all. Aside from all the beauty Hawaii has to offer, it also faces numerous problems: The already large homeless population is increasing, many parks and beaches are littered, and the fragile natural environment is slowly being eroded. Mass tourism is only helping to perpetuate this cycle. Clearly not all travel benefits local communities. A gap exists between the Hawaiian community and the visitor industry.

Hawaii needs people who care about preserving its beauty and travelers who don’t just travel, but travel to change—their lives, the lives of local communities, and our world.
