South Sardinia: first sustainable destination in Europe

The European Commission has recognised South Sardinia as top destination for tourism and environment in Europe.

 

The prestigious recognition has arrived after a great deal of work which rewarded the close cooperation between the territories of South Sardinia and, in particular, the University of Cagliari, the municipalities of Cagliari, Domus de Maria, Muravera, Pula e Villasimius, and their Tourist Associations.

 

The project, awarded by Bruxelles, has overtaken the competition of about 200 destinations in Europe which, as South Sardinia, took part to two pilot phases of the Etis European system related to best practice for sustainability, according to international standards recognised for preservation of the environment, of the community and of identity, with the goal of promoting a sustainable model of economic development which can benefit future generations.

 

Sardinia becomes protagonist in Europe and, thanks to the strong international relations of the last few years with the World Tourism Organisation (UNWTO), the Global Sustainable Tourism Council (GSTC), its model of sustainable development is officially recognised with top marks at international level.
