For an extended period, travel and storytelling have been predominantly influenced by tourists, neglecting the voices of local communities and exploiting their heritage. Resonate’s mission is to rectify this imbalance by fostering local pride as a community’s most sustainable asset.
Resonate provides a platform for local individuals to share their stories, allowing narratives to emerge organically from within their communities. They acknowledge the value of these stories and are committed to compensating these community members for the privilege of sharing their tales. By doing so, Resonate aims to create a network of mindful travelers who respect and engage with the destinations they visit.
Furthermore, Resonate seeks to revolutionize the travel industry by addressing pressing sustainability concerns and centering the experiences of local people. They aspire to shift the traditional traveler-centric mentality to one that prioritizes the well-being of both the destinations and the people residing there.
