Over the years, more than 200 destinations and partners have joined our programs, helping us create a large sustainable destinations community.
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 Good 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?
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 Good Travel Guide.
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
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
