Local Heroes are part of the Local Travel Movement

Nomaders logoThe idea of Local Heroes is to facilitate contact between travelers and local people and make it easier to go local when we travel. At Nomaders, we believe it is important to let the traveler know from first hand what’s the point of view of someone who lives there, because the best way to become aware of the place, is to do things with someone who lives there and wants to retain its charm and beauty for a long time.

We have found a movement that defends our same values, summarized as follows:

* The importance of connecting with local people before or during travel.
* Traveling in a way that respects the environment.
* Respecting the local culture and heritage during your trip.
* Spend our money locally, local businesses (crafts, food, etc …).

IN SPANISH / EN ESPAÑOL:

Los héroes locales son parte de Local Travel Movement

Como hemos estado comentando en varias ocasiones, la idea de los Héroes Locales, persigue facilitar el contacto entre viajeros y gente local con el fin de que sea más sencillo acceder a lo cotidiano cuando viajamos. En Nomaders creemos que es importante que el viajero conozca de primera mano cual es el punto de vista de alguien que vive allí, porque la mejor forma de tomar conciencia de cómo es el lugar es hacerlo con alguien que vive allí y quiere que conserve su encanto y belleza por largo tiempo.

En la red hemos conocido un movimiento que está muy en consonancia con los valores de los Nomaders Local Heroes, se trata de Local Travel Movement.

Un movimiento que defiende unos valores que compartimos y que se resumen en estos conceptos:

* La importancia de conectar con la gente local antes o durante el viaje.
* Viajar de una manera que respete el medio ambiente.
* Respetar el patrimonio y la cultura locales durante tu viaje.
* Esforzarse para invertir nuestro dinero localmente, en negocios locales (artesanía, gastronomía, etc…).

  2. Lovely idea indeed! I never heard about it before and am just about to explore the Nomaders site a bit more. Quite interesting approach and less “obligation” involved than with let’s say couchsurfing or similar concepts. I like it, thanks for sharing! :)
