Apply now: “TO DO! Contest for Socially Responsible Tourism”
On the long run, the future of tourism will also depend on its sustainability for the people living in the world's tourist destinations. Against this background, the Institute for Tourism and Development (Studienkreis für Tourismus und Entwicklung e.V.) has announced the 23rd international TO DO! contest for socially responsible tourism.
More information and a video on the TO DO! Contest are available on the facebook page.
The award is given in March of each year on the occasion of the International Tourism Exchange in Berlin. The prize-winning projects are thus made known to a broad public.
Who can apply?
The TO DO! is awarded for projects, measures or products which are characterised by the active participation of the local population and fairness in the way the projects interact with all the stakeholders involved in the development of tourism. The applicants may be tourism businesses and organisations, public institutions or other legal entities.
The main criterion that qualifies for a TO DO! award is the active participation of local people in the planning phase and during the implementation of the project/measure/product. Participation includes both the involvement of local people with their various needs and interests when taking fundamental decisions, as well as economic benefit-sharing.
