Explain your idea in details:

The main objective of this idea is to promote sustainable tourism globally. This app will be able to pair travellers with a local family (of the destination they choose), and the family will be able to take the travellers to local hotspots and visit eco-friendly destinations of their choice. Not only are hotels very pricey, they negatively impact the earth by contributing to climate change. For example, creating new hotels leads to the destruction of wildlife, carbon and other greenhouse gas emissions, high water consumption rates, and so much more. The "Get Together" app is basically carpooling, and camping combined. Families are encouraged to participate in these activities, and travellers are, as well. Travellers often disregard the whole concept of eco-tourism, which is basically tourism that is mindful of the earth and sustainable. If people 'get together' and team up around the world, we can continue to travel and have a good time without the fear of harming the earth and precious ecosystem that is around us.

Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development

This idea revolves around sustainable tourism, which is very important considering the current state of our planet. We hope to target travellers and families to participate in this app, and become more aware of the impacts tourism and travellers can have on the world as a whole. This idea is conceptual, but the app would be able to evaluate its success by following the number of participants on a regular basis, and it will be advertised on different social media platforms to encourage its use.

Plans for implementation and sustainability

Again, this idea is conceptual, but hopefully the leaders of this app could team up with coders and app makers to ensure the idea is functional and safe. Perhaps social media platforms and YouTube ads could help support this app, as well. With a background check, the families will be able to apply (with a $20 submission fee to support the development of the app), and the travellers will be paired with a family based off of similar interests and preferred locations. The traveller will have to pay a fee as well (for staying in the home) but, they will be responsible for paying for food and excursions while they are away.

Your profile

Hi! My name is Serena and I am from Ontario. I am 17 years old and currently in high school. My motivation is sustainable tourism, and I believe I am qualified to participate in this competition because I am a frequent traveller, and I am also in a Travel and Tourism class which has helped open my eyes of the many consequences behind travelling. For instance, I have done multiple projects on the impacts of travel on local environments, and I believe that my idea is very unique and would be effective! I am determined, and I hope to help the earth in the future. Our impacts are detrimental and eventually, our impacts will be irreversible. Join me in keeping our planet sustainable so we can continue to enjoy ourselves in the future to come!
