Airbnb has launched a new program where they will sponsor 12 people to live anywhere in the world for an entire year. “Live Anywhere on Airbnb” will support a dozen people (over 18 years old) from July this year until July of 2022.
The pandemic has had many consequences in our personal and professional life. Among those, there has been an increase in flexibility at work, leading to more people jumping on the freelance experience and home-office jobs. This might be one of the reasons why the vacation rental company has recently experienced an increase in stays of more than 28 days.
This nomadic lifestyle might be our new normality in the near future. You might be wondering, what does Airbnb get from all of this? Well, the company will be able to collect first-hand experiences from the participants, which will allow them to upgrade and innovate their platform and services.
If you are selected, you will receive free accommodation anywhere you’d like in the world as long as it’s an accommodation offered on Airbnb’s website. Your transport expenses will also be covered and you’ll be able to bring up to three companions too. So, yes, families can apply too!
Airbnb’s program changes the way we see the world at the moment, but also highlights how much has changed since the pandemic started. Lots of people, especially younger ones, are eager to travel the world while working online from whatever corner they are staying in. To be part of this initiative you can apply here and you have time until 30th June.
