Known as volunteer tourism or voluntourism, this new trend is the fastest growing market in the tourism industry and generates millions of dollars of profit every year. The definition of voluntourism is still very blurry and there truly is a need for more research in that field.
Intrigued by this new form of tourism, Chloe Sanguetti set out to do a round the world trip a year and a half ago, starting in South America, through Australia to end up in South East Asia. She met with volunteers, directors of local organisations and experts on the topic of voluntourism. She has created a film documenting her experiences- and will take part in an audience Q&A after the film has been shown.
