Green Destinations Community

Destinations, regions and countries are connected to the world’s largest sustainable destinations community through their Green Destinations Ambassadors. Green Destinations Ambassadors share knowledge and experiences with colleagues from around the world. Together with Experts and solution providers, GD Ambassadors help their destination to improve by promoting sustainability solutions.

Green Destinations Days

The Green Destinations Community was first launched at ITB Berlin 2015, and had successful meetings and presentations at ITB 2016, and at Global Green Destinations Days.

Members of the Green Destinations Community are encouraged to organise their own local, regional or national Green Destinations Day. For more information: contact the Green Destinations Secretariat.

Sustainable Destinations Top 100

Members of the Community are encouraged to nominate their destination for the Sustainable Destinations Top 100 competition, that was first organised in 2014, and repeated in 2016 and 2017. The 2018 Top100 competition is now open for nominations.

The aim of the competition is to highlight success stories in destination management, and to exchange good practices between destinations, for example at Green Destinations Days.
