Best Social Responsibility Initiative
The UNWTO 2030 Sustainable Development Goals are thought to stimulate action in supporting change in policies, business practices and consumer behaviour towards a more sustainable tourism sector.
The 2018 Global Youth Travel Award for Social Responsibility recognises organisations that give back to the local or global community through innovative social projects. We are looking for an inspiring example of an organisation giving back to the community.
Examples might include efforts in sustainability, business ethics, best practices, development or activities such as sponsorship of a local charity, running a not-for-profit initiative or even a full-scale Corporate and Social Responsibility programme.
The panel of judges will evaluate submissions based on the following criteria:
- Tangible positive social outcomes
- Humanitarian intent
- Community outreach and engagement
- Management and staff involvement
- Lasting impacts
The Best Social Responsibility Initiative Award is open to all socially responsible youth, student and educational travel providers.
An organisation can submit multiple entries for the award.
Entries must be in English.
All entries must be submitted by Tuesday, 31 July 2018 at 23:59 CET.
WYSE Travel Confederation will shortlist a maximum of five entries per category, by reviewing the information provided on the application forms.
A panel of judges, all of whom are industry experts, will assess shortlisted applications and score each one based on the established judging criteria. The highest scoring application will be the winner.
Judges are asked to declare any business connection with shortlisted organisations.
