Community

Wayfairer.coop makes a real difference to Australian communities.

Benefits to the Community

Regenerative tourism is about community building. Our aim is to help communities to realise the value of their assets, by returning capital earned from those assets back to the community. This is done through a staged approach with a focus on guest, host and community participation.

Step #1

Communities prioritise relevant projects for approval and selection based on measurable criteria aligned to UN Sustainable Development Goals

Step #2

Hosts place their properties at the service of the community enabling 50% of guest booking fees to be donated to approved community projects.

Step #3

Guests nominate projects to which their donation is directed based on their connection to community and their experience.

Step #4

Wayfairer.coop manages the funding to ensure effective distribution, project success is measured and outcomes reported to all stakeholders
