Sebastián is making rural communities become critical leaders in burgeoning community-based tourism industry to achieve self-sufficiency, economic benefits, and more general community empowerment.

Tourism is 10.4% of world GDP and 215 million jobs (8.1% of the total, according to an WTTC estimate). Because of the inequity of the industry and the creation of low-skilled and pay jobs, the host population is bearing the brunt. Travolution.org promotes inclusion, sustainable Community Based Tourism (CBT) in the market.

El turismo constituye 10,4% del PIB mundial y 215 millones de puestos de trabajo (8,1% del total, según estimación del CMVT). Debido a la inequidad de la industria y la creación de empleos de baja cualificación y remuneración, las poblaciones anfitrionas se llevan la peor parte. Travolution.org fomentará la inserción, sustentable, del Turismo de Base Comunitaria (TBC) en el mercado.
