076, Drew Meyers, Horizon | Building Empathy through Travel with a Trusted Network

Building empathy is the first step in becoming a changemaker. And what better way to build empathy than to travel? But not all travel is created equally. As it has been said,

The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.

When you travel, you have choices of just how “local” the experience is. You can stay in a homogenous hotel chain, a local boutique hotel, stay in the home of a close friend, or even stay in the home of a stranger. You might want the most local and authentic experience possible, but how do you know whom to trust? Trust is the currency of the shared economy.

Horizon is allowing people to tap into their trusted network to find accommodations from a couch for a night to an apartment for a month. And, by allowing us to tap into our network, we are building empathy.

Building Empathy Quotes from Drew Meyers:

“This is a really, really unique big world that we live in, but if you really get down to it, and actually talk to people, we’re all in the same boat.”

“We enable travel opportunities via community with the long-term end goal of increased empathy in the world.”

“There is a very real life lottery that exists in this world, and it’s as simple as where you were born.”

“Horizon’s long-term goal is to enable community wherever you are, and unlock opportunities.”

“We’re trying to counteract the time-suck economy.”

“Really be crystal clear about the why, but don’t be married to the how.”
