Just a Drop founder Fiona Jeffery has received an award from the International Institute for Peace Through Tourism (IIPT).
"It reflects the power of tourism and the paths we walk and how each of us can make a contribution to our industry"
Jeffery was among six industry figures to receive the Global Ambassadors of Peace Through Tourism accolade from IIPT for her work with the charity during a ceremony held at WTM London.
David Scowsill, former chief executive of the World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC), was also one of the recipients of the global ambassador award.
Meanwhile, Taleb Rifai, secretary general of UNWTO, was presented with a Lifetime Award as a Global Man of Peace Through Tourism by the IIPT.
Jeffery said: “I think [this] simply reflects the power of tourism and the paths we walk and how each of us can make a contribution to our industry that perhaps creates a lasting impact and influences how we progress as an industry in the future.”
