At Earth.org we have no office! Our team members are placed all over the globe. We work from the beach or in the mountains, in cities or at the countryside, at home with kids or whilst traveling. Earth.org is a collaboratively written travel guide (with a non-profit approach).
If you like to write, want to contribute and share your favourite restaurant in your hometown or some info on your traveling experiences, you share your knowledge – and if we all do this a new way of travel can emerge. You suddenly have free and reliable travel information in the Internet, as you have it now with Wikipedia for the world of encyclopedia. Go the www.earth.org and look around, write and/or become an ambassador for your city.
