Ashoka's Changemakers in collaboration with National Geographic are searching for innovations that protect destination quality through tourism that "sustains or enhances the geographical character of a place — its environment, culture, aesthetics, heritage and the well-being of its residents.” In Africa there are many such opportunities, so let us see if Africa can gain in prominence with more entries to The Geotourism Challenge 2009: Power of Place with Entry Deadline on 20 May 2009.
Some of the past African nominations:
Fair Trade in Tourism , South Africa: nomination
Urban Walkabout , South Africa: nomination
Campi ya Kanzi, Kenya
