Bhutan wins the Earth Award in ITB Berlin, Germany
The Tourism Council of Bhutan is delighted to share that the Kingdom of Bhutan won 1st place for the Earth Award at the award ceremony in ITB Berlin. A jury representing 12 leading sustainable tourism organizations and networks selected Bhutan from among more than 100 top sustainable tourism destinations.
The award programme is initiated to recognize and appreciate tourism destinations that work toward managing ‘over tourism’ and their commitment in sustainable tourism development and promotion. It also provides a platform to showcase ‘green destinations’ to the world.
Most importantly it is a testimony of the wise and visionary leadership of our Kings, the government’s commitment to protecting and preserving our environment; and the tourism industry’s effort in sustainable tourism.
We thank the distinguished jury for recognizing Bhutan’s leadership on the global stage in its commitment to combat climate change and protect and preserve the environment. Our appreciation to ITB Berlin, Green Destinations and Travelmole for organizing the award event.
ITB Berlin is a premium platform for global tourism players with over 160,000 visitors attending/participating in the event.
