Should voluntourism (travelling to volunteer as a tourist) be banned?

  • Skill & knowledge

    People may come in with no knowledge of the city and/or country. Ergo, teaching tourists lies rather than fact. This harm the country and the tourists as some come to learn about the city for a project, just basic learning, etcetera. And this is why voluntourism should be banned everywhere

  • Why is this even up for debate.

    Debate lover a lover of debates obviously has a basic understanding of what voluntourism is. And to then with that basic knowledge demand a ban, whew is this North Korea. I spent a year on a kibbutz in Israel with people from all over the world and the education I received by rubbing shoulders with these people was invaluable. Infact it should be compulsory for all to experience other cultures and a working holiday environment is a perfect way to do this.
