Awards presented by:
Jeff Greenwald, Executive Director, Ethical Traveler

One of the best things mindful travelers can do is spend their tourist dollars in countries that uphold core values like human rights and environmental protection.

Bay Area-based Ethical Traveler (a project of the Earth Island Institute) compiles an annual research report on “The World’s Best Ethical Destinations.” The non-profit honors 10 countries – all in the developing world – that are best protecting their environments and promoting socially-just, sustainable tourism. Please join us to meet the team behind the report, and to mingle with ambassadors and representatives from the award-winning countries. Learn which countries made the 2018 list and why.

Location: the Goldman Theater at the David Brower Center
2150 Allston Way, Berkeley, CA 94704
Time: 6:30 p.m. check-in, 7pm program, 8pm reception
Cost: Free for Ethical Traveler members (must be a member to attend the ceremony; membership is free. If you are not already a member, just sign up at the door, or at ).

Thank you to the David Brower Center for sponsoring the space for this event.
