Couch Surfing

There are innumerable ways of bringing good will into daily life. One interesting initiative is “Couch Surfing“, an online community that has started 1999 in Montreal and now has over 200.000 members in over 215 countries. They are trying to network people who like traveling with others who offer on a free basis a city tour, a common meal or even a possibility to stay over night (“Couch Surfing”). They say about their work:

“CouchSurfing seeks to internationally network people and places, create educational exchanges, raise collective consciousness, spread tolerance and facilitate cultural understanding.

As a community we strive to do our individual and collective parts to create world a better place, and we believe that the surfing of couches is a mean to accomplish this goal.

CouchSurfing is not about the furniture, not just about finding free accommodations around the world; it’s about making connections worldwide. We make the world a better place by opening our homes, our hearts, and our lives. We open our minds and welcome the knowledge that cultural exchange makes available. We create deep and meaningful connections that cross oceans, continents and cultures. CouchSurfing wants to change not only the way we travel, but how we relate to the world!”
