Voluntourism combines vacation travel with volunteering at the destination visited. It's also spawned a new vocabulary: voluntourist, ethical holidays, travel philanthropy, and more. Voluntourism is aligned with the more established concept of "sustainable tourism," defined by Sustainable Travel International as "lessening the toll that travel and tourism takes on the environment and local cultures." This travel style is a seamlessly integrated combination of voluntary service to a destination, and the best, traditional elements of travel - arts, culture, geography, history and recreation - in that destination. More simply put, Voluntourism is travelling to another place to directly interact with the destination and its residents with the objective of improving their well-being through socio-cultural development or environmental conservation by providing volunteer assistance and/or good and services.
