Welcome to the Indagare Global Classroom

In response to the impact of Covid-19 on the travel industry, Indagare has launched a new program designed to bring the world to you through virtual travel offerings. The Indagare Global Classroom is a series of group and private programs, including virtual tours, hands-on workshops and tastings, family-friendly experiences and immersive lectures with Q&A sessions developed in partnership with our top guides, insiders and specialists around the world. We have tapped into our extensive network to enable special access to high-quality, authentic travel experiences during this challenging time when you (and our on-the-ground experts) are at home, but still craving global stimulation. In addition to our live community offerings, private experiences can be arranged—for special celebrations like birthday parties, bachelorettes and family gatherings; as gifts; and as corporate programs for engaging your employees or clients. In tandem, our founder Melissa Biggs Bradley will also be leading Global Conversations, a series of live talks with some of the most inspiring people she has met through her travels. Select conversations are made available for download afterwards on the Indagare Podcast. We are also thrilled to announce our year-long Indagare Clubs, which build on our live Global Classroom sessions and offer unique opportunities for small groups of like-minded travelers to connect and pursue passions—like cooking, design, fashion and art—together, with monthly virtual meetings.

These programs are open to Indagare Members and Subscribers and their friends, and they stream live via Zoom. All sign-ups are first-come, first-served; however, Indagare Members are given priority access to our club programs. We will send instructions on how to join on Zoom following sign-up (it’s easy—we promise!). New programming is being added regularly. Some sessions are free of charge. Those with a fee help support our global partners or their non-profit foundations during this time when global travel is limited. Contact us for more information.

Explore our programming and sign up below. We look forward to seeing you soon…live on Zoom!

Indagare Global Conversations

How does travel shape our lives and who we become? On Indagare Global Conversations, our founder and CEO Melissa Biggs Bradley introduces you to some of the most extraordinary people she has met through her travels. Listen, learn and be transported as she talks with innovative entrepreneurs and activists, filmmakers and authors, tastemakers and conservationists from around the world. Plus: Missed us live? You can now download our favorite episodes when you subscribe to the Indagare Global Conversations Podcast, available for streaming on Apple Podcasts, Spotify and Stitcher. New episodes are being added weekly.

NEW! RSVP NOW – UPCOMING CONVERSATIONS:

Global Conversation with Sustainable Tourism Leaders Jaisal and Anjali Singh
Wednesday, December 2 from 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. ET. Sign up here

When the world went on lockdown, we all began to consider how and why we travel more seriously than ever before—but Jaisal Singh has been examining the impact of travel on our environment for the last two decades. At just 21 years old, Jaisal built one of the very first eco-conscious luxury safari tented camps in India—Sher Bagh on the edge of the famed Ranthambore Tiger Reserve—and with his wife, Anjali, they expanded the brand, SUJÁN, internationally, adding SUJÁN The Serai (Jaisalmer), SUJÁN JAWAI (Jawai Bandh) and Elephant Pepper Camp (Masai Mara, Kenya). The Singhs are now globally recognized as pioneers in India’s conservation tourism efforts—as well as the minds behind some of the finest hotels in the world. Anjali has also been recognized by Forbes as one of the 12 young female business leaders on the rise in Asia (as of 2016). Join Melissa Biggs Bradley in conversation with this power couple next week for their perspective on traveling responsibly—as well as the future of hospitality and sustainability in India, what to know about Indian tourism and culture (should you be planning a trip for the future) and, of course, the majestic Ranthambore tigers.
