LONDON, UK: A small beach lodge helping to lift a community out of poverty; a project to regenerate an island’s fragile eco-system; an international hotel company supporting the protection of orangutans, turtles, and coral reefs; and a national park collaborating with local villagers for wildlife conservation and preservation of 2000-year-old rock art sites are among the twelve finalists in the 2011 Tourism for Tomorrow Awards разкри днес от Световен съвет за пътувания и туризъм (WTTC). The awards recognize achievements among businesses and destinations across the full spectrum of the travel and tourism industry.

“Travel & Tourism continues to make significant strides in balancing its success with its footprint on the world. After all, our destinations and products rely on the sustainability of our environment, and its diverse cultural and natural heritage to provide for our customers and employees, as well as the communities we live and work among,” said David Scowsill, President & CEO of the World Travel & Tourism Council.

“For many years, the Tourism for Tomorrow Awards have helped showcase the projects, initiatives, and operations that the industry is already undertaking. Our 12 finalists, drawn from 186 entries from over 60 countries, are carrying the flag for sustainable practices in our own and other industries.”

Finalists were selected by an international panel of independent judges led by Costas Christ, Chairman of Judges, and an internationally-recognized expert on sustainable tourism. In the first stage of a comprehensive three-step process, they selected award entries that best demonstrate the protection of natural and cultural heritage, delivering social and economic benefits to local people, and engaging in environmentally-friendly operations, as well as other factors.

Unique among such awards, judges will now visit each of the finalists to make in-depth assessments and gain a well-rounded picture of the organizations and businesses in practice. As part of the process, they meet with various stakeholders involved, including project representatives and employees, people from local communities, the private sector, and government officials. Highly competitive and a standard bearer in the industry, the awards are given out in four different categories:

“Travel & Tourism can have positive benefits for the planet and for local people, by fostering the preservation of our natural, cultural, and historical heritage and by supporting community empowerment and revitalization,” said Costas Christ.

“We are seeing a new horizon in the global travel and tourism industry, where more and more companies and destinations, both large and small, are leading the way forward in demonstrating tourism’s opportunity for environmental stewardship and delivering tangible social and economic benefits. With these awards, we commend those achievements and successes, and look forward to more companies and organizations engaging in sustainable tourism best practices in the future.”

The winner selection committee is drawn from media, government, nonprofit organizations, and the private sector. In addition to Costas Christ, the 2011 judges are Keith Bellows, Editor-in-Chief of National Geographic Traveler; Lindsay Garbutt, CEO for the Ministry of Tourism, Civil Aviation & Culture, Belize; Fiona Jeffery, Chairman of World Travel Market & Just A Drop; and Robin Tauck, President of R Tauck & Partners.

Once again, winners and finalists will be recognized at WTTC’s annual Global Travel & Tourism Summit, held this year at the sustainably-designed and certified Aria Resort in Las Vegas from May 17-19. Delegates at the summit will find out the winners in each category as part of the event’s official opening ceremony and welcome dinner. The Награди „Туризъм за утре“ are organized in association with Travelport and the Travel Corporation’s Conservation Foundation.
