Travel + Leisure Editor-in-Chief Jacqui Gifford said in her April issue Editor’s Letter, “The mission of the Global Vision Awards has never been more relevant. Everything we love about travel—the broadening of perspective it brings, the exposure to new ideas and people, to unfamiliar tastes and sounds and smells—remains the same. What has shifted, or perhaps accelerated, since the start of the pandemic is our understanding that there is no more time to waste: we must protect the health of the earth and its people. Travel providers have a responsibility to do so, and as consumers, our dollars and our time (another precious resource) should be spent on brands that share our values.”
