Every year, the Global Destination Sustainability Movement celebrates evolution in the meetings and leisure tourism industry at the annual ICCA congress. The GDS-Movement Awards include the GDs-Movement’s Leadership, Most Improved, and Innovation awards. The year's Index results inform the first two awards, while the latter is chosen by an independent panel of experienced event professionals and sustainability leaders. The Innovation Award showcases remarkable, scalable, and globally applicable solutions driving a destination’s regenerative management. In 2021, chief GDS-Changemaker, Guy Bigwood, presents these in person at the European hub in Paris, 26 October, 12h00 – 12h30 Central European Time (CET). He begins with an introduction to the Regenerative Revolution. ICCA’s president and executive director, James Rees, also gives a refreshing perspective on the sustainability tsunami, and the winners are welcomed on stage/screen. All eyes are on the 75 destinations, 18 capitals, 27 countries that stepped up to be included in 2021’s climate of positive change.
