About our Awards

Responsible Travel’s vision for the World Responsible Tourism Awards at WTM rests 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. We want to celebrate the shining stars of responsible tourism – the individuals, organisations and destinations working innovatively with local cultures, communities and biodiversity.

The Awards are organised by founders Responsible Travel, in association with the International Centre for Responsible Tourism, and take place at the World Travel Market in London as part of World Responsible Tourism Day – the world’s biggest event for responsible tourism.
