Opportunities for business cooperation and networking in the field of sustainable development

The Global Green Destinations Day will bring together leading sustainability-oriented destinations from around the world, tourism providers, hoteliers, representatives of companies providing practical green solutions in tourism and representatives of governmental and non-governmental institutions drafting sustainable policies in order to find new connections, establish strategic partnerships and link international networks whose objective is to promote a brighter and more sustainability-oriented future in tourism.

In addition to the Bled Strategic Forum, the Global Green Destinations Day is the central event focusing on sustainable tourism, which the Slovenian Tourist Board highlights as the key development priority.
