✈️ See the World Inside Out
+ Turn the World Inside Out
= Scale Citizen Diplomacy 🌎
My mission is to provide opportunities for travel-lovers to explore & experience the world to the fullest. Then, empower them to turn the world inside out by sharing travel learnings, cultures, adventures to spread global citizenship.
Empowering long-term travelers & nomads scales citizen diplomacy & removes biases for people of the world:
Long term travelers are the connectors of people of different cultures. They create understanding and a sense of belonging for every one involved in the new culture - one individual, one community at a time.
Our perceived differences among racial and cultural boundaries create global conflict.
They give birth to intercultural biases, judgements and misunderstandings.
Any technological solution that initiates a conversation on a person-to-person level ignites mutual understating & innovates peace. The resulted bonding facilitates educational exchange and economical development opportunities among nations.
Today, technology provides multitude opportunities to create frequent person-to-person interactions.
