Green Destinations Ambassadors

Green Destinations Ambassadors are people who promote Green Destinations programs in their destination, or play an active role in making an online Green Travel Guide of their destination, region or country, showing travellers what their destination offers in the field of authentic natural and cultural experiences.

Become an Ambassador! What are the benefits?

You can become one of the Editors of the Green Travel Guide of your destination, region or country.

Active ambassadors can greatly benefit from combined publicity around Green Destinations Days, where active Ambassadors will be given the opportunity to their sustainable tourism story or their Green Travel Guide.

Ambassadors share knowledge with other ambassadors in the “Green Destinations Ambassadors” groups on Facebook and LinkedIn, and in the annual Global Green Destinations Days!

What is the Ambassador’s commitment?

In the GD Ambassadors Community, you do not pay a fee, but you make one of the following commitments
  • Taking initiatives in your destination, region or country to adopt the Green Destinations Standard in its destination management, and to participate in the Green Destinations Awards & Certification Program
  • Helping to select the typical natural and cultural offer in your destination, for the Green Travel Guide.

Green Destinations Stories

During Green Destinations Day, we asked some Top 100 destination ambassadors to tell us a short story about their destination.
These stories were then made into videos, which illustrate the uniqueness of every destination. You can watch them all in this link.

This is “The Gentle Helpers Story” by Petra Stušek of Ljubljana, Slovenia
