Green Key Portugal organised a regional seminar for the north of the country introducing the Green Key programme for 2019, and a local TV station reported from the event.
The regional Green Key seminar was held on 27 September 2018 in the town of Felgueiras. The town was selected to celebrate the first Green Key awarded establishment in Felgueiras, namely the restaurant Caffé Caffé.
The Mayor of Felgueiras who attended the seminar expressed his wish to develop sustainable tourism in the municipality through active support to the local entrepreneurs working with sustainability. In his view the hosting of the Green Key seminar was seen as a natural continuation of the commitment to sustainability in the municipality, and it was a great opportunity to celebrate World Tourism Day.
The event was attended by awarded and candidate establishments from the North of Portugal interested in applying for the Green Key award in 2019, but also students from hotelier schools in the region participated in the seminar.
This seminar was the first regional workshop in Portugal in relation to the Green Key programme for 2019. The next regional workshop for the Lisbon region will be held on 12 October 2018 in Cascais in connection with the Greenfest event.
