Individuals and organisations across the globe accelerating change and making an impactful contribution to net positive tourism are invited to enter for free.

An Advisory Board of experts have selected 21 categories to reflect the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and net positive framework of people, planet, place, prosperity and partnerships.

Global voting, open to travel and tourism professionals, will run from June 14 to August 2.

Leaders in sustainable travel will be invited to attend the inaugural WSTHA Gala Ceremony in Belize, the Official Host Destination, on September 27 when the winners will be announced.

Justin Cooke, Executive Vice-President, WSTHA said: “Entries for the inaugural WSTHA close in three weeks. We welcome entries from across the sustainable travel and hospitality sector, with our goal to recognise and tell the stories of those accelerating change and making a sustainable impact on our planet for the next generation.”

As Official Host Destination of WSTHA 2024, Belize holds responsible tourism at its core and develops projects that encourage travellers to engage with its rainforests, reefs and unique culture in a sustainable manner.

Anthony Mahler, Minister of Tourism, Belize, said: “We encourage individuals, organisations and responsible travel advocates to share their stories and initiatives, highlighting how they are leading the way and making encouraging strides to a better future.”

The WSTHA programme is run in partnership with the Sustainable Hospitality Alliance whose donor members and members represent over 50,000 hotels, 7 million rooms globally, 270 brands and more than 40 supply chains and strategic partners. – TradeArabia News Service
