As we always aim to promote responsible and sustainable tourist guiding it is our duty and honour at the same time to recognize the efforts and work of all tourist guides who are connecting Worlds every day through their stories and guiding.

Tourist guides are cultural brokers, sustainability communicators, unforgettable experience creators, educators and ambassadors of sustainable tourism for all. They are voice of responsible tourism.

On 27th of September 2018, on World Tourism Day, the first tourist guide, voice of responsible tourism, was awarded the Green Microphone Award in the ceremony in Ljubljana, Slovenia. You can check out the video of the ceremony on the FB page G-Guides. In 2019 the winner was Myo Min Zaw from Myanmar. In 2020 we had two winners of the Green Mcriophone Award: Mike Turpie from Scotland and Resi Nickl from Spain.

On 27th of September 2021, on World Tourism Day, we will again hold the ceremony for the Green Microphone Award.
