Founded in 2005 at the initiative of the members of the South of France who were also the organizers of the first International Forum on Solidarity Tourism (FITS),  the association is based in Marseille. Marco Polo Echanger Autrement (MPEA) brings together multidisciplinary experts and professionals of the sustainable development, of tourism and of the communication sector. The association relies on an international network of associations and non-governmental organizations.
