The World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC) is calling on travel and tourism organisations to enter its Tourism for Tomorrow Awards 2018.
The award celebrates the best in sustainable tourism business leadership with categories including community; destination; environment; and people.
Fiona Jeffery OBE, founder and chairman of the international water aid charity Just a Drop and chairman of the WTTC Tourism for Tomorrow Awards, said: “2017 has been the year when the impact of growing tourist numbers has been called into question, with backlashes against overcrowding in some key European destinations. Now, more than ever, it is vital that the industry steps up and accepts its wider responsibilities.
“Our award winners help highlight solutions, based on successful and innovative business models built around, empowering local communities, inclusiveness, and the preservation of environment and cultural heritage.”
The 2018 finalists will be announced in January 2018, while winners will be announced during next year’s WTTC Global Summit, which will take place in Buenos Aires, April.
Award applicants may apply online via http://wttc.org/tourism-for-tomorrow-awards/apply/. The closing date for applications is November 14, 2017.
