As 2017 has been designated as the International Year of Sustainable Tourism for Development by the UN to "support a change in policies, business practices and consumer behavior towards a more sustainable tourism sector that can contribute effectively to the Sustainable Development Goals" Green Key has decided to dedicate this year's best practice competition to the topic: 


Green Key awarded establishments are encouraged to share their activities, initiatives and best practices that promote sustainable social, cultural, environmental or economic developments in their local area. 

More information and the guidelines for participating in Green Key's Best Practice Competition can be found here. The deadline for submitting the story is 1 September 2017. The winner will be announced publicly on the World Tourism Day, 27 September on the Green Key website and in Green Key's social media.

Good luck to all Green Key awarded sites that participate in the Best Practice Competition 2017!
