Join our Global Village and Travel with Impact this year!

Impact travel is revolutionising the way we see the world and ourselves within it. Unlike traditional tourism, which often skirts around the edges of local communities, impact travel plunges you straight into the heart of what makes a place truly special —its people. It’s about more than just witnessing; it’s about participating in meaningful change. This approach is gaining momentum as travelers seek experiences that offer more than just relaxation or adventure; they want to leave a positive footprint behind. Habitat Australia’s Global Village program is a great example of how impact travel not only broadens horizons but also builds them, one brick at a time. 

The importance of impact travel lies in its dual benefits: it aids communities whilst enriching the traveler’s life. By volunteering with programs like Global Village, individuals can tackle global issues hands-on, from poverty to inadequate housing, contributing to sustainable solutions that empower communities long after returning home. This form of travel cultivates a deeper understanding and connection to the world, fostering empathy and a sense of global citizenship. It challenges participants to step out of their comfort zones, learn new skills, and see the immediate impact of their efforts on the lives of others.
