2022 Global Vision Award Winners Announced Today

NEW YORK, March 15, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Dotdash Meredith's Travel + Leisure announces the 33 honorees of its 2022 Global Vision Awards, celebrating exceptional work and innovation aimed at building a greener, brighter, and more equitable planet. Pushing the limits of what's possible and showing the world what a better tomorrow could look like, this year's Global Vision Award winners are featured in the April issue of Travel + Leisure, on newsstands March 18, and at now.

As Travel + Leisure Editor in Chief Jacqui Gifford wrote in her Editor's Letter, "Our April issue is all about the travel companies, destinations, festivals, personalities, you name it, who are looking ahead to a greener, brighter future in tourism. Our Global Vision Awards once again honor some of the standouts in the field: People such as Jonny Rhodes, an agricultural activist and chef tackling food inequity in his hometown of Houston. Hotels such as Kisawa Sanctuary, on Mozambique's Benguerra Island, where the floors and façades of the low-lying thatched villas were 3-D printed using sand and seawater. Places like Paris, where the city is spending $300 million to alleviate traffic on the tourist-clogged Champs-Élysées. Fewer cars, more public art and green spaces. Everybody wins."
