Justice Travel is a global collaborative of travelers and activists, working together to defend human rights.

After launching in March 2018, we ran a series of pilot tours in Colombia. Through these experiences, we developed a sustainable model for how to design, market, and run travel experiences that both educate travelers about human rights & directly benefit local activists.

We are now pivoting to build a broader global community, and to serve a variety of stakeholders who aim to promote human rights through travel.

We tap into the talent, experience and passion of our team for human rights and development to undertake deep analysis of local dynamics, creating new knowledge and spreading innovative approaches to tourism. Our team includes experts in responsible tourism, inclusive development, design for good, local governance, and global communications.

Development of pro-justice local tourism initiatives. We work between local communities and development actors – governments, NGOs, companies, or investors – to design and implement tourism initiatives that empower local communities. 

Impact itinerary design. We work with organizations planning travel to design an itinerary that introduces travelers to major social, environmental and political themes, while also building community among travelers. 

Education around tourism and justice. We create courses and training sessions tackling skills and trends in the tourism sector around human rights, responsible tourism, and impact. 

Research and analysis. We produce detailed analysis of dynamics, actors, and trends around tourism and human rights.
