The Slow Fund
The Slow Fund is our vehicle to support projects with a focus on education, culture, conservation and preservation that are global in scope and local in impact.
In this time of unprecedented global change, as natural habitats and traditional ways of life are diminishing, we recognize that action to protect, invest in and revive at a destination level is vital. As passionate travellers and believers in positive-impact travel, we want to protect our world’s cultural and natural heritage.
We carefully review initiatives that align with our values and the One Planet Principles. Our criteria for selecting projects ensure funding goes towards the following: protecting and promoting local arts and culture, raising awareness & educational support of local environmental issues, wildlife conservation and local community engagement with wildlife and providing training and/or financial support for local initiatives that enhance the economic wellbeing of a community.

How Your Trip Makes a Difference
Did you know – every time you travel with B&R it contributes to the Slow Fund?
Each booking contributes $20 to the fund which is then matched by B&R. Every traveller booked means a total of $40 is allocated to projects around the world to directly impact the environment and communities where you travel.
You also have the option to balance your international flights through our partnership with C-Level. For every flight balanced, B&R will donate $10 to the Wild Aligned, Forests without Frontiers project in Romania, connecting remnants of the great Carpathian forests.
