TransHumans was created in France in 2006 as a non-profit association. The main objective was to support local community development in rural areas of Argentina and Chile, by implementing environmental and cultural educational projects.
The initiative was carried out by young professionals in the sustainable development sector, with the common desire to offer support to rural populations. These communities, too often marginalized from national development policies, tend to lack the means to act in favour of the protection of their own natural and cultural heritage, simply because of more urgent needs, caused by their living conditions.
Alongside the Association’s educational programs, TransHumans identified Responsible Tourism as a way to enhance the welfare of people and protect the local natural and cultural heritage.
In September 2010, we decided to create TransHumans Tourism Agency, Responsible Travellers. We soon learned how inspirational and satisfying culturally-respectful and environmentally-sensitive travel can be.
Responsible and Sustainable Tourism has proved to be the best way to fund educational programs and to participate in the local sustainable development.
