World Legacy Award 2017

For Chambok CBET, this is the second nomination for a large international award, after already winning the To Do! Award 2013 together with Mlup Baitong. Both partners teamed up to apply for the World Legacy Awards this year. The selection process included an online application and an on-site field evaluation by a National Geographic judge. During the field visit the judge had the chance to experience the partners’ work in sustainable tourism first hand, and to meet stakeholders such as community members, tourists, representatives of Ministry of Environment and Ministry of Tourism, as well as Mlup Baitong staff. After a successful evaluation, Chambok CBET was officially announced as a finalist by National Geographic on December 1st, 2016. Representatives of Mlup Baitong and Chambok CBET will attend the award ceremony at ITB Berlin in Germany in March 2017.
