Here at Intelligent Travel, we're always looking to promote innovations in sustainable travel. And now, National Geographic and Ashoka Changemakers' Geotourism Challenge offers you a way to join the global dialogue on protecting the places we visit.
If you're a geo-savvy traveler, alert to the quality and character of the destinations you visit, and you know of people who work to sustain, enhance, and preserve the culture and environment of a place for future generations, we want to hear from you. Let us know where you have been and what you found. Based on your travels (or experience in your own locale), nominate a person, place, business, or organization that’s doing things right.
Join National Geographic and Ashoka's Changemakers in the global search for the most innovative ways to demonstrate and advance geotourism, defined as "tourism that sustains or enhances the geographical character of a place – its environment, culture, aesthetics, heritage, and the well-being of its residents." Help preserve unique places for future generations of travelers.
Visit the Geotourism Challenge site to nominate, debate, and collaborate on ideas and learn more about how you can get involved. The Challenge is open for nominations now, and for entries beginning January 30. All nominators who tell their first-person stories become eligible to win one of two trips from World Hotel Link.
