About the Awards
The Responsible Tourism Awards were founded by responsibletravel.com in 2004 to find and celebrate the very best examples of responsible tourism from around the world. Our purpose is to recognise, reward, inspire and to challenge others to do more, and to use the Awards to surprise and inspire tourists and the tourism industry with wonderful travel experiences that create better places to live in and to visit.
The Responsible Tourism Awards are different to other Awards in that they are nominated by members of the travelling public, rather than by a group of experts (although it is a group of experts that judge and award winners). As a result an extremely diverse and large number of nominations are made each year, which is important in terms of finding and recognising the best examples and latest developments in responsible tourism.
