What we are looking for in World Responsible Tourism Award entries

Winning a World Responsible Tourism Award builds reputation, it makes business sense.

There are many ways in which the tourism sector is addressing the pandemic in destinations all around the world:

  • Addressing the needs of neighbours and employees in the face of Covid-19 – finding ways of sustaining business to keep local people employed or using their facilities to help their neighbours cope with Covid-19
  • Decarbonising travel and tourism- this remains a real priority for the sector
  • Supporting wildlife and habitat in a year when tourism earnings for wildlife and conservation have been very substantially reduced
  • Building or maintaining “meaningful connections” through Responsible Tourism value-led marketing and social media engagement
  • Fundraising for people, wildlife or heritage
  • Developing Domestic Tourism – looking for examples of businesses & destinations which have refocused on attracting a more local market, encouraging staycations or localisation (when safe to do so)

The Awards this year are different.  Don’t be reticent. Good practice must be recognised; the market is becoming more discerning.

Remember the judges can only recognise the destinations, businesses and other organisations or individuals that are nominated. Nominate yourself or others here
