Responsible Tourism Awards

  • WTM Responsible Tourism Awards 2017

    The WTM Responsible Tourism Awards are presented each year at WTM London, in front of an audience of 600 key influencers and decision makers. These awards are a centre piece of WTM Responsible Tourism Day – the biggest responsible tourism event globally.

    This year’s global Responsible Tourism Awards, to be presented on World Responsible Tourism Day, Wednesday November 8th at WTM London, are focused on tourism’s contribution to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, the SDG’s.
  • Could you be in the running for a WTM Responsible Tourism Award?

    We are looking for:

    • Examples of where your businesses or destination has reported the outcome and impacts of efforts to make tourism more sustainable to make tourism more sustainable or use tourism to make better places for people to live in.
    • Examples of your business or tourism organisation’s positive sustainable impact

    We’re looking at good practice examples from both large and small companies. Smaller businesses and organisations are no less worthy of an award and should not be deterred from applying. The judges are looking to recognise a range of approaches to reporting impact and communicating it to consumers, local people and governments.

    • Getting to know more about each other remains one of the most important hopes for the peaceful future of the planet. If we are really to understand each other better, then we need to be reminded to travel carefully and thoughtfully, listening to people along the way and respecting the world we are privileged to travel through. The Responsible Tourism Awards are one of the most important ways in which we can understand how to travel better.
