Airbnb launches today Online Experiences, a simple and virtual way to allow people from all over the world to be together, share, learn.
Meditation with a Buddhist monk connected from Osaka, Japan, magic with a London wizard, Irish dance live from Galway, natural cosmetics with an expert from Milan: these are just some of the themes to which the courses present in the panorama of experiences created by Airbnb and usable from over 30 countries around the world, along with the inevitable cooking lessons: from the Singapore bao to “grandmother’s” pasta, passing through the Swedish pastry shop.
“Human relationships are at the heart of what we do – he explained by launching the new project Catherine Powell, Head of Airbnb Experiences – With such a large number of people locked in the house to protect their health and that of others, we want to offer hosts the opportunity to connect with the community all over the world in the only way possible right now, online. “
