SAVE OUR PLANET
GREEN TOURISM AWARDS (THAILAND)
Save Our Planet is a series of forums addressing the challenges of global warming
and reducing humanity’s carbon footprints. The conferences were developed by
Asean Affairs, the “Voice of Southeast Asia” and were launched in 2010 in Bangkok.
The fifth edition of the series is coming up in Bangkok. Save Our Planet forums are
organized by the Asean Affairs Business Council and Time Green Consulting.
The first Save Our Planet was held at the Radisson Hotel, Bangkok, on 12 March 2010. The
fifth Save Our Planet conference will reach out to Thai people and focus on environmental
issues in Thailand and is scheduled for 17 November 2011 at IMPACT MUANG THONG
THANI, Nonthaburi (Bangkok). The theme of Save Our Planet 5 is “Air-Water-Earth.”
As part of Save Our Planet 5 (Thailand), we intend to reach out to the country’s
huge tourism industry by inviting 30 nominations for SOP Green Tourism Awards
from hotel and tourism associations such as: Association of Thai Travel Agents (ATTA),
Association of Domestic Travel (ADT), the Thai Hotel Association (THA) the Thai Spa
Association and the Koh Samui Tourism Association. The awards are to encourage the
best “green” practices in Thailand’s tourism industry.
We are inviting each of the 30 nominees to setup a display at SOP 5 to showcase
display their sustainable tourism practices. Hotels and travel agents may nominate
themselves for this award.
