Join a social impact travel experience to Puerto Rico this June with a #foodsovereignty theme!
Do you enjoy learning in context? Do you love to travel? Do you desire a meaningful experience that actually gives back to the local economy? Travel with socially conscious startup ExplorEquity to Puerto Rico from June 23-30, 2019 for our exciting and unique experience- “Exploring Food Sovereignty in Puerto Rico: Post-Maria”. During our curated trip, we'll spend time LEARNING about food systems and food sovereignty, engaging in CULTURE, and experiencing ADVENTURE. You'll connect with like-minded travelers and walk away with amazing new connections. After the trip:
1. You’re going to feel knowledgeable about food sovereignty and what's going on in Puerto Rico.
2. You’re going to have a defined personal commitment of what actions you want to take back home.
3. You'll feel part of a community that cares about their impact as a traveler.
This trip is for you if you care about the world and your place in the world, if you're curious about social issues and want to learn directly from locals, and if you feel overwhelmed by the prospect of trying to build a meaningful experience like this yourself. Until May 31st, we are offering a special discount of $100 off for FSLN members with the code FSLN100.
Activities include farm visits, cultural and historical learning, workshops with local experts, beach/free time, and hiking.

Everything has been carefully planned and curated- this will truly be a unique and unforgettable experience.
