Government websites that educate visitors about ecotourism and responsible travel options are eligible to win Planeta.com’s third annual Ecotourism Spotlight Award. Nominations are accepted April 1 – June 30, 2009.
The award was developed to create incentives for communication, opportunities for conversation and a reward for participation among government leaders working toward ecotourism and responsible travel.
“Many tourism officials are figuring out Web 1.0 principles as locals and visitors are seeking out the Web 2.0 experience,” said Planeta.com founder Ron Mader. “The spotlight award helps move government leaders forward as we give credit to those leading the pack.”
The winner is announced in celebration of World Tourism Day (September 27) as way of spotlighting best practice in responsible travel and ecotourism.
