Studienkreis für Tourismus und Entwicklung e.V. (Institute for Tourism and Development) has announced the 23rd edition of the TO DO! 2018 Contest Socially Responsible Tourism.

The United Nations declared 2017 as ‘International Year of Sustainable Tourism for Development’ to foster better intercultural understanding and increased awareness of the rich heritage of civilizations, and to encourage appreciation of the inherent values of different cultures, while contributing to peace in the world.

This adds to the reasons for Studienkreis to identify and support projects that have adopted socially responsible tourism practices. Tourism related projects, measures and products by private or public organisations practicing socially responsible tourism are eligible for the TO DO! award. The most important criterion is the consideration of different needs and interests of local people through participation in the planning and implementation of projects. The criteria also include decent work, training and capacity building, strengthening people’s own culture, gender equity, environmental sustainability, and other aspects which contribute to sustainable tourism development.

The TO DO! winners will be selected by an expert jury and checked on-site by an independent appraiser. The winner(s) will be invited for the award ceremony at ITB 2018 in Berlin (the major part of travel costs will be covered by Studienkreis für Tourismus und Entwicklung). The price includes the TO DO! Trophy, a certificate and a prize money of 5000 Swiss Francs.

Please submit your project latest by 31st August, 2017.
