Speaking of Intrepid, Adventure.com is 100% funded by (but editorially independent of) Intrepid, the world’s largest travel B Corp. If you’re unfamiliar with B Corp, it’s basically a rigorous certification reserved for organizations that have proven themselves to be taking their commitment to people and planet seriously. Intrepid is 100% carbon neutral and is one of the only travel companies in the world with science-based emissions reduction targets. Adventure.com is also on the road to becoming a B Corp ourselves, so watch this space.
Thirdly, through our Pay it Forward subscriptions, our readers can literally help create a more equitable future of travel by supporting our charity partner, the Intrepid Foundation. From helping to educate young women in Morocco’s High Atlas Mountains to assisting community reforestation efforts in Kijabe, Kenya, the Intrepid Foundation supports grassroots organizations that are improving livelihoods through sustainable travel experiences. Think of it like the world’s most impactful magazine subscription. Because that’s basically what it is.
This whole thing is a journey for us. And we won’t always get it right. We probably don’t even have it right right now. What’s important for us, and for our contributors, and hopefully for you, is that we’re committed to getting better. And over the coming months and years, you’ll see a number of initiatives from us that will help us make good on that commitment. This is just the beginning.
We want to engage you, our readers, in this conversation as much as we possibly can. You can send your thoughts, feelings, jokes or complaints directly to email@example.com at any time (please allow up to a week for a response).
We’ve worked very hard on these stories, and we hope they spark your imagination, give you some potent (and responsible) ideas for your next adventure, introduce you to some resolutely badass individuals, make you feel deeply and profoundly connected to someplace that you have never been, prove to you beyond all reasonable doubt that positive change is possible, or otherwise make you feel something.
See you out there.
Oliver Pelling, Meera Dattani and Lauren Steele
