After the CC social’s success, a few members have shared their desire to have a new type of online get-together where we could have more Hosting focused conversations.
With that in mind, we have decided to give your idea a go! 😊
Apart from the Social meet-up, we now have The Host Talk, a Community Center meeting for sharing and discussing pre-chosen Hosting related topics.
We plan on giving you guys the chance to vote on your preferred subjects in the future, but to kick things off, this first session will have the theme of Sustainability. 🐛
@Anna1403 , our sustainability focused HAB member, will be joining the conversation with fellow hosts who are interested in sharing their experience and coming up with insights for a more sustainable way of Hosting.
The meet-up will take place on Thursday April 29th, 3:30PM (BST).
Thursday April 29th, 9:30AM (Kansas City / Pensacola, Florida)
Thursday April 29th, 10:30AM (New York / Toronto)
Thursday April 29th, 4:30PM (Spain)
Thursday April 29th, 11:30PM (Seoul)

As promised, I have put together a brief summary of a few key points that we discussed during our Host Talk. Please feel free to let me know if you feel anything is missing from it 😊
📣 The Host Talk - Sustainability - Key takeaways
Participants suggested several platform updates they believe would be helpful towards achieving those goals:
@Liv Hi Liv, so sorry to of missed this meeting (I just heard about it), congratulations on hosting it and thanks for the summary. I do believe that Air BnB and its hosts have the ability to make a huge contribution to sustainability worldwide, both in lowering emissions and consumption and also education. I'm a big supporter of all the suggestions you have mentioned here. At the very minimum, changes should enable the platform to have the ability for guests to search for accommodation that has at least some sustainable characteristics. This is essential to drive the implementation of sustainable practices and infrastructure. Hosts who already have such facilities should be matched up with guests who want to lower their impact. Consumers are becoming more aware of company's corporate governance policies with regard to social justice and the environment, with this in mind it is a little surprising that Air BnB is so slow in implementing these changes. Can you please tell me what Air BnB's policies on the environment are?
