Top 10 Green Tourism Solutions

At the occasion of Global Green Destinations Day (Ljubljana, 27-28 September 2016), a contest for selecting 10 Green Tourism Solutions was developed. The main goal was to award solutions and projects already developed and implemented that can improve the environmental and sustainability performance of touristic destinations.
The 10 Green Solutions selected were either innovative environmental approaches developed by industry or project examples developed by organizations or destinations that made a touristic location more sustainable.
The criteria used by the international jury for the final selection of the green practices were:

  • Effectiveness to solve widespread problems in tourism sustainability;
  • Innovative character;
  • Ease of implementation, technically and financially
