National Geographic Society and Ashoka’s Changemakers Launch Online Contest Seeking Top Innovators in Sustainable Tourism

The National Geographic Society and Ashoka’s Changemakers opened the entry process for the second annual “Geotourism Challenge” to showcase how tourism done well sustains, enhances and preserves local culture and the environment. The competition will identify individuals worldwide who have introduced the most innovative practices in tourism and destination stewardship.
Conducted in partnership with Ashoka’s Changemakers, the global Geotourism Challenge will accept online applications through May 20, 2009. Applicants must demonstrate an innovation that protects destination quality and furthers geotourism, defined by National Geographic as “tourism that sustains or enhances the geographical character of a place — its environment, culture, aesthetics, heritage and the well-being of its residents.”
