Planeta.com’s Ron Mader has hosted online video workshops via Periscope and FacebookLive.

Ron Mader: I think from the Western hemisphere we tend to focus on the cities and built environments in Europe. The natural worlds – from city parks and botanical gardens to national parks and protected areas – are rarely part of the travelogues. That said, it’s important to stress to European advocates of conscious, responsible, nature-based travel that it is critical that you explain the basics.
