Best responsible tourism campaign

Exodus TravelsSponsored by:

At Exodus we have always believed in three simple guiding principles for the way in which we want to travel.

  • We realise that every destination is someone else’s home
  • We should leave places as we would like to find them
  • We should ensure that communities benefit from our visit

Tourism is one of the most important and largest industries on the planet. It employs more people worldwide than any other, with millions of families relying on tourism for their daily needs.

2013 - Best for Responsible Tourism Campaigning
Winner: people and places, UK

people and places

Judges' reasons for winning: "people and places were highly commended in 2007 in the Best Volunteering category and they won this same category in 2009. The judges were impressed by their campaign for responsible volunteering; they have also been active in campaigning for child protection whilst running their small business. Their campaign has been funded entirely through their business. Making extensive use of the social media the two directors have given their time freely to fight for change. Over the last few years, practice in volunteering has improved, although there is still much to be done - people and places have been at the heart of that movement to raise awareness and demand action, working with many partners in the UK and abroad".
