Owner Of Nikoi Island Andrew Dixon Nominated For Pure Judges Choice Awards

The owner of The Long Run Fellow Member Nikoi Island (and Cempedak Island) Andrew Dixon has been nominated for a Pure Life Experience Award, in the Judge’s Choice Category.

Pure Awards are given yearly to celebrate the achievements of a global community of heroes changing worlds in responsible travel in different categories that include conservation and sustainability, and community engagement.


Unlike the other categories, where the PURE community is asked to apply, the Judges’ Choice category was introduced to allow PURE’s judging panel to nominate a person, project or organisation from outside the PURE community that nonetheless embodies PURE’s ethos to Change Worlds, whether through exploring further, protecting the planet or reconnecting travellers with their loved ones and themselves.


Andrew was nominated by Gisela Williams.

Gisela says: “Andrew is a huge believer in sustainability and the double bottom line. Cempedak is being built almost entirely out of bamboo. He brought in some Balinese architects who helped out with the Green School. He is an amazing guy. This project would absolutely win the Sustainable Design awards hands down. But he is also very pioneering when it comes to innovative environmental infrastructure and practices.”


Votes for Andrew can by cast by 12 September at this link 


Keith Vincent, CEO of The Long Run Supporter Wilderness Safaris, is shortlisted for the ‘Contribution To Experiential Travel’ 


The winners will be revealed at the Awards Party in Marrakech on Tuesday 13 September.
