Announcing the Indigenous Tourism Biodiversity Website Awards

Posted by deborahmclaren on November 24, 2008

Planeta.com and the Secretariat of the Convention on Biological Diversity are collaborating to showcase best practices in web-based technologies helping indigenous people manage tourism in a biodiversity-friendly way. Indigenous tourism websites that promote sustainable practices and educate visitors on cultural protocols and biodiversity conservation are eligible to win Planeta.com’s Indigenous Tourism and Biodiversity Website (ITBW) Award. Nominees include indigenous owned and operated tourism businesses around the world.

The Indigenous Tourism and Biodiversity Website Award has been designed in partnership with the United Nations Secretariat of the Convention on Biological Diversity (SCBD) to motivate indigenous tourism operators and associations to improve their online communication and to highlight the best practices of indigenous and local communities (ILCs).

Nominations will be accepted until December 12, 2008. Voting takes place in January 2009.
