The idea

The concept

Imagine arriving in a city like Paris or Mumbai and, instead of trying to find a taxi, there is somebody already waiting for you. Imagine that instead of going to eat at the place recommended by the guidebook, someone shows you their favourite restaurant. Imagine the experience staying as a personal guest of your new friend rather than sleeping in an impersonal hotel room. BeWelcome makes it possible.

After a first informal meeting, the new BoD will have its first official meeting on December 4th. The meeting will take place in private, mainly because we first want to get to know each other and because of negative experiences made by previous boards. After that we will announce the outcomes publicly on the BeVolunteer IRC-channel, as far as we can, and will be open for questions and comments by the community on that same channel.
