co-mads is redefining travel with innovative solutions. we’ve developed the trinity of modern travel, which entails mindful tourism, conscious consumerism, and community impact.
traditionally, travel has been used as an escape, a chance to take your mind off of pressing personal, professional, and social issues. co-mads trips are taken with purpose, to stimulate your mind and to face these issues head on. mindful tourism is about using travel as a way to challenge one’s own belief system, to engage with people of different backgrounds, and to embrace new cultures. this allows for personal growth. mindful tourism is not about checking tourist destinations off your list, it’s about becoming a thoughtful and active member of the community you are exploring. co-mads fosters mindful tourism by immersing our travelers in local culture and hosting events centered on networking and thoughtful roundtable conversations in an effort to cultivate transformative change in ourselves and the community.
co-mads promotes conscious consumerism by building itineraries that financially support small and locally owned businesses with social missions, as well as aiming to be environmentally sustainable. our brand is built with this value at its forefront. we donate a percentage of all proceeds to nonprofit organizations.
co-mads embodies community impact. we provide our travelers with meaningful and enriching volunteer opportunities by building mutually beneficial partnerships with effective local nonprofit organizations and social enterprises. co-mads chooses to work on community service projects that cater to the social issues and needs that are specific to each region we are exploring.
as travel becomes more accessible, it is important to set a standard as to what it means to be a socially responsible traveler in hopes of a better world. co-mads is setting that new standard by implementing the trinity of modern travel.
