Ever wanted to star in your own travel show or produce one?
Right now I am assisting the network (CCN – ConsciousConsumerNetwork.tv) to find those interested creating a weekly travel show! CCN is an independent alternative online media station. I've been doing a weekly show on the network for the last 6 months about alternative education (For the Love of Learning – Voices of the Alternative Education Movement) and have gained a huge following as a result. All shows are broadcasted live, then are archived on youtube. I imagine as a travel blogger it will be a great way to boost your brand's credibility, show off your talents and be broadcasted over a professional network.
The network asked me if I'd be interested in doing a travel show and I declined (so busy with my other projects), but I said I'd help find talent here within this community. What the network needs, first and foremost, is one or two producers for the show. (I will help for the first month, but after that, I need to get back to my own projects.) The producers will book the talent, filling the ongoing guest travel host spot! The idea is, 1 traveler / travel blogger per week, filling an hour long slot. Each guest host will work with the producer will determine the format for that show, could be a combination of hosting travel videos, live onsite broadcasts, telling travel stories, doing reviews, live interviews and / or showing a photo slide show. The hour time slot will be for the producers to decide. Right now, they need a couple of committed producers with vision.

If anyone is REALLY interested in the producers slots, please send me a message asap as I am helping organize this. (this is non-paid)

Do you know a teen who would love to explore the enigmatic site of Machu Picchu, experience the exotic flavors of Peru or explore the traditions of an ancient people? Do you know a teen interested in sacred plants, connecting with the sacred Apus (mountains) and live in harmony with Pachamama (mother earth)? Do you know a teen who would like to explore archaeology first hand, question everything and explore a mystic tradition still a part of everyday life in the Andes? 

Do you know a teen who seeks community and adventure? Please share with them this.

We invite you to join us this July for one of the most incredible learning communities on the planet: Project World School - Cusco & the Sacred Valley Teen Retreat.

Introduction

Lainie Liberti is a recovering branding expert, who’s 18 year career once focused on creating campaigns for green – eco business, non-profits & conscious business. In 2008, California’s economy took a turn and Lainie decided to “be the change” instead of a victim. She and her then 9-year-old son, Miro began the process of redesigning their lives, with the dream of spending stress-free quality time together. After closing her business, selling and giving away all of their possessions, the pair hit the road for a permanent adventure in mid 2009.

Five years, 15 countries and many personal changes later, Lainie & Miro continue to slow travel around the globe, living an inspired possession-free-lifestyle, volunteering and learning naturally. They are both following their interests on the road, as the planet has been transformed into their classroom. Often you will hear Lainie say “we are blessed to be accidental unschoolers” and has become and an advocate for “life learning” at any age. In fact, Lainie & Miro have taken this philosophy to heart and are producing a series of family and teen oriented retreats in Peru called Project World School Peru.

The duo describe their greatest accomplishment as the ability to participate in the world without fear. They invite you to follow along as a single mom and her teen-age son live the history & culture of foreign lands, encounter amazing people, interact as global citizens, serve as volunteers, and naturally learn along the way at RaisingMiro.com -Raising Miro on the Road of Life.

Birth of a Dream

Project World School Peru was born from an inspired idea between unschooling mom and son, Lainie and Miro. The pair have been living on the road for over 5 years and have engaged in natural learning as their life’s commitment (and are deliriously happy in the process). This mother and son duo have been living in Peru for over two years, and through exploring the sights, sounds and tastes contained within the Sacred Valley of Peru , they have become inspired to bring this experience to a wider group of people. Thus, the inspired idea to create a temporary natural learning community in Peru’s Andes was born.

Both Lainie & Miro have been forever changed through their exposure to the rich indigenous culture of Peru’s Sacred Valley, which has inspired them to learn about Andean mysticism, history, archeology, sustainability, arts and culture. The learning has been natural and the result enriching. Together, Lainie and Miro birthed a vision to share this special place, designed as a temporary learning community transformed into a magical retreat for unschoolers of all ages.
