community powered tourism
Fairbnb.coop started its journey in 2016 as a movement seeking to create a just alternative to existing home-sharing platforms. Initially the movement emerged in Venice, Amsterdam and Bologna but soon other groups from all over Europe joined the debate and helped us in shaping the final model that we are seeking to implement.
In late 2018 we created a co-op to serve as the legal entity behind the project, an open organization where in the near future we plan to welcome all actors of our ecosystem.
Fairbnb.coop is a community of engaged citizens, researchers, and people from a variety of professional backgrounds aiming to put the word “share” back into the sharing economy.
The platform provides a community-centred alternative to current vacation rental platforms that prioritizes people over profit and offers the potential for authentic, sustainable, and intimate travel experiences.
Fairbnb.coop is a web-based meeting place that allows hosts and guests to connect, facilitating for meaningful travel and socially beneficial exchange.
