Founder of the International Institute for Peace through Tourism presented with award from ICTP

Founder of the International Institute for Peace through Tourism presented with award from ICTP (Forimmediaterelease.net) At the World Travel Market (WMT) in London, the President of the International Council of Tourism Partners (ICTP), Geoffrey Lipman, presented the ICTP Visionary Award to Louis D'Amore, President and Founder of the International Institute for Peace through Tourism (IIPT). Mr. D’Amore received the award at the IIPT Climate Change seminar held at WTM yesterday.

Mr. Lipman said: “I have known Louis for 30 years. He is a true visionary and works tirelessly to spread his vision around the world for peace through tourism. He is so richly deserving of this award.”

Louis D’Amore has been instrumental in promoting the travel and tourism industry as the world’s first “Global Peace Industry” since the founding of IIPT in 1986. In 1992, following the UN Conference on Environment and Development (Rio Summit), he developed the world’s first Code of Ethics and Guidelines for Sustainable Tourism for the Canadian tourism industry. He also conducted the world’s first international study on Codes of Conduct and best practices in Sustainable Tourism for the United Nations.

The International Institute for Peace through Tourism is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to fostering and facilitating tourism initiatives which contribute to international understanding and cooperation, an improved quality of environment, the preservation of heritage, and through these initiatives, helping to bring about a peaceful and sustainable world. It is based on a vision of the world's largest industry, travel and tourism - becoming the world's first global peace industry, and the belief that every traveler is potentially an “Ambassador for Peace.”
