World Responsible Tourism Awards 2016 launch

Entries accepted in a growing number of categories
People in the travel industry around the world are being invited to submit an entry to this year’s round of the World Responsible Tourism Awards, to be presented at WTM London in November.
Sponsored by the Belize Tourism Board, the awards are a search for the world’s most enduring and inspirational examples of responsible tourism in action. Entries are accepted in a number of categories.
A new category for 2016 is Best Responsible Tourism Campaign, featuring the most successful marketing or advocacy campaigns in promoting a more responsible style of travel.
Categories also include Best Accommodation for Responsible Employment, won last year by Atlas Kasbah Ecolodge; Best Contribution to Wildlife Conservation, sponsored by Florida Keys and Key West Tourist Development Council; Best Innovation by a Tour Operator; Best for Poverty Reduction and Inclusion, sponsored by the Tobago House of Assembly; and Best Responsible Tourism Campaign.
“The organisations, initiatives and businesses we uncover each year have the power to shape the future of tourism, to be catalysts for change in an industry which will have a huge impact on global climate and development,” said Justin Francis, founder of the awards and managing director of the organiser Responsible Travel.
“I want to encourage any tourism business or organisation around the world, big or small, to submit an entry. We want to hear your story.”
