The World Responsible Tourism Awards 2020 will be dedicated to recognising those in travel and tourism who have taken significant steps to address the multiple challenges brought to the travel industry by the Covid-19 crisis.
The awards will be given out on World Responsible Tourism Day on 2 November that will take place during WTM London. The last few weeks have seen an outpouring of innovation and solidarity from the travel industry, and this is what WTM wants to recognise this year.
Harold Goodwin, responsible tourism advisor at WTM London and Emeritus professor said: “The awards this year are about recognising those in the travel and tourism sector who have made a real effort to address the impacts of Covid-19 and used their resources and facilities to make things at least a little better.”
Unlike other years, there will be no categories to enter. Instead, any destination, business, organisation or individual can register their initiative.
