World Responsible Tourism Awards

The Responsible Tourism Awards were founded in 2004 to celebrate and inspire change in the tourism industry. The Awards rest on a simple principle that all types of tourism, from niche to mainstream, can and should be organised in a way that preserves, respects and benefits destinations and local people. The awards celebrate the shining stars of responsible tourism, the individuals, organisations and destinations working innovatively with local cultures, communities and biodiversity.

The 2013 awards were broadcasted live for the first time and the video can be viewed online. The video looks back at the first ten years of the Awards Heroes of Responsible Tourism. The Awards and the judges’ reasons for their decisions are available on line.
