Global Action Atlas – How Will it Change Voluntourism?

Have you all seen the Global Action Atlas? I potentially fabulous tool for recruiting volunteers and also for raising funding for projects in need. Created by the team at Nat Geo its still in beta but looks really promising.

Here is a bit of screen grab, notice at the bottom #3 – Take Action: Volunteer, help carry out a project.

Is this sort of site something that we’ve been waiting for or might it further confuse voluntourism and the pay to volunteer model?
