Join OUT for Sustainability and Net Impact Seattle for a social and discussion on the hot topics in sustainable travel. We'll mingle with a diverse mix of folks in a casual environment while getting a snapshot of the cool things happening in sustainable travel!

As we settle in, we start with a short discussion between Adventure Travel Trade Association, REI Adventures and EverGreen Escapes on the inspirations, difficulties and the future of sustainable travel. Then we'll dive deeper in small groups led by the folks who know their stuff in a variety of travel-related subjects, including:

* Economy: Keeping Your Money Local While Traveling

* Culture: How to Prepare Before Entering Foreign Cultures
* Standardizations: How Organizations are Coming Together
