The goal of the FromZero Travelers community is to organize events that bring together responsible travelers, students and local micro-businesses in a beautiful and lesser-known rural location through authentic local experiences, workshops and fun evenings.
The aim is to learn about current trends and innovations through carefully selected discussions, give back to the host community, improve the local tourism offer and forge new, lasting relationships through team-building activities and local adventures.
The philosophy behind FromZero Travelers
➡️ Giving back and creating a positive impact in the places we visit
➡️ Transformative experiences
➡️ Connecting people with peripheral communities
➡️ Organizing events and experiences that draw from our local culture and environment (from zero km)
➡️ Experimenting with and using technology for good
➡️ Think about how we would do things if we could start them over
Join us in one of our newest adventures in the periphery!
Hi everyone! I'm Rudi and together with my colleague Jaka, we founded the Web3 Travelers community. We've been exploring the Web3 space for a while now and been part of some cool communities. The adoption of Web3 services set a domino effect that is impacting every industry in the world. And travel is no different.
The travel industry is also slowly riding the Web3 bandwagon, with new decentralized organizations and services being built from the ground up. Most of them seem to be doing the accommodation part. We need these decentralized services. But we also need new experiences, i.e. activities that give us a sense of place, and easier connections between like-minded people.
Our mission is to connect and empower Web3 native travelers with new meaningful experiences. We started this by organizing the 1st Web3 retreat in Slovenia and our next stop is a Greek island, where we will organize our next camping retreat! If anyone is interested, please fill out the interest form. We will launch more information soon. Interest form: forms.gle/pkvBN3Zcph6eSHDp9
Hi Rudi, thanks for sharing Web3 Travelers with the Travel Massive community!
Bringing people together in-person is always the best way to start projects and get new ideas to happen, so I think this is a great idea.
Is the community specifically for a) people looking to build Web3 ideas in travel, or b) to allow Web3 people to travel while building their ideas?
I've seen a few meetups hosted by Winding Tree at various Web3 events, so perhaps they would be worthwhile getting in touch with.
Good luck with the project, and looking forward to visiting one of your retreats! :)
Hi Ian, glad you like our idea and thanks for letting us show it to the community!
The idea is to build Web3 native travel services together with our community members, with which we're going to target Web3 people who travel and also need a sense of community. Hope that answers your question :)
Good idea for Winding Tree! Thanks for the recommendation. I also look forward to seeing you at our events ;)
Two weeks ago we organized the first dinner in Slovenia using NFTs as tickets. You can learn more about in the blog post we prepared:
Let us know, if there is something that interests you about NFT ticketing.
Hi Jaka, thanks for sharing the article. Really interesting to see the application of NFTs in the real world, well done! What crypto did you use to mint the NFTs and what were the fees to issue them?
Also, great video too — sharing below for readers:
Thanks Ian for your questions. We used the Ethereum network. Yes there were some fees associated with our choice of blockchain. There was a fee of 40 € to mint 10 NFTs. But you know, it will be better in the future. Now you just take a hit, for the future of innovation :)
Thanks for showcasing our project! I wanted to take this opportunity to invite all tourism experts, researchers and enthusiasts to our upcoming event - Living Learning Lab in Slovenia on June 24.
You can join us for an immersive local experience, creating meaningful connections, giving back to the local community, hearing their stories, and experiencing new adventures in one of the most beautiful Karst villages in Slovenia.
The Living Learning Lab, LLL, is an event that brings together travelers, students and local micro-businesses in a beautiful and lesser-known rural location through authentic local experiences, workshops and fun evenings. The aim is for you to learn about current trends and innovations through carefully selected discussions, give back to the host community, improve the local tourism offer and forge new, lasting relationships through team-building activities and local adventures.
Hope to see people from the TM community there!
