वर्ष 2021 में हम वैश्विक  पुरस्कार (ग्लोबल अवार्ड) प्रारंभ कर रहे हैं । अवार्ड में अलग अलग श्रेणी के लिए अलग अलग देशों और क्षेत्रों से स्वर्ण विजेताओं का चयन होगा । इन चुने हुये स्वर्ण विजेताओं में से वैश्विक पुरस्कार विजेताओं का चयन किया जाएगा।

In 2021, for the first time, we are launching Global Awards for each category – selected from the Gold winners in each of the regions: India, Africa, Latin America and the rest of the world.

रिस्पॉन्सिबल टूरिज्म पार्टनरशिप (RTP) में वैश्विक पुरस्कारों को चलाने में विश्व पर्यटन बाज़ार (WTM) की भागीदारी है।  रिस्पॉन्सिबल टूरिज्म पार्टनरशिप (RTP) के प्रबंध संचालक हेरोल्ड गुडविन, सभी निर्णायक पैनल के अध्यक्ष हैं । जो यह सुनिश्चित करते हैं कि ग्लोबल अवार्ड्स कार्यक्रम एक सुसंगत प्रक्रिया है।  भारत में हम आउटलुक और आईसीआरटी इंडिया के साथ काम कर रहे हैं।

The Responsible Tourism Partnership (RTP)  is WTM's partner in running the Awards. Harold Goodwin, RTP's MD, chairs all the judging panels to ensure that we have a consistent process across the Global Awards programme. In India, we are working with  ICRT India.

Businesses, destinations, and organisations that enter the India Responsible Tourism Awards will be automatically entered into the Global Awards.

भारत जिम्मेदार पर्यटन पुरस्कारों में भाग लेने वाले  व्यवसाय, पर्यटन स्थल और संस्थाएँ स्वतः वैश्विक पुरस्कारों की श्रेणी में शामिल हो जाएंगे।

Booking.com’s latest global research suggests that we have reached a “potential watershed moment for industry and consumers”. Their research shows that travellers and holidaymakers want to travel sustainably and look for businesses and destinations that take responsibility for providing them with those opportunities. 48% say they find it harder to make sustainable choices while on vacation than in their everyday life. We need to make it easier for them.  83% of global travellers think sustainable travel is vital. Almost half (49%) still believe that in 2021, there aren’t enough sustainable travel options available.

Being recognised in the WTM Global Responsible Tourism Awards is an important way of demonstrating that you are taking responsibility and creating sustainable travel and holiday experiences.


In the new global awards system, we encourage people to nominate businesses, destinations, and organisations you feel should enter for the Awards - of course, we are still encouraging people to apply; you don't need to be nominated first. Obviously, the judges can only select from amongst those that apply.
