Presentation of the Awake Tourism Challenge with Q&A Session

29 September 2022 | 15H00 CEST | YouTube

The Innovation Team of the World Tourism Organization went live with the Awake Tourism Challenge almost 6 months ago. The ongoing global competition that is seeking to find the most innovative tourism startups that are working to advance the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, is coming to an end 15 October 2022. In order to motivate potential startups that still want to participate, and to provide startups that haven’t finished their application yet with additional information, we are organizing a Webinar less than one month before the deadline.

Already convinced you want to apply or want to find out more information on the challenge?
