ISTO is delighted to announce the launch of the 2022 edition of the ISTO Awards, inspiring the future of fair and sustainable tourism for all!
In keeping with its goal to promote tourism that benefits people, communities and the environment, ISTO is calling all its members to participate in the first edition of the ISTO Awards by submitting an ongoing or finished project, initiative or program for fair and sustainable tourism for all. The ISTO Awards are open at an international level and applications will be accepted until 18 July.
For this first edition, three categories have been created and 5 initiatives from members will thus be rewarded:
- Public Authorities initiatives, which includes a subcategory for national public authorities and one for regional or local public authorities.
- Social, fair and responsible tourism initiatives, which includes a subcategory for Social Tourism and one for Responsible, fair and community-based tourism.
- Academy and research initiatives
ISTO will deliver an additional award for a non-ISTO member organisation.
Participating in the ISTO Awards is a great opportunity to gain visibility and develop a network of organisations with the same values for a social, fair and responsible tourism sector. The Awards Ceremony will take place during ISTO World Congress happening in the Azores, Portugal from 12 to 15 October.
