Celebrate World Tourism Day on GGDD Conference in Ljubljana

Slovenia is celebrating its green character. Tomorrow on World Tourism Day, Ljubljana will host the global green flagship event of the year – Global Green Destinations Day. The event will bring together representatives of the world`s leading sustainable destinations, international organisations, governments, expert organisations and winning destinations from around the world which will celebrate their selection.

The world is celebrating green tourism in Slovenia! A two-day conference, Global Green Destinations Day, is being held in Ljubljana, the European Green Capital 2016, starting tomorrow. The flagship green destinations event is planned on a global scale and will bring together leading experts in sustainable development and green tourism, opinion leaders, representatives of destinations, associations, hoteliers and tourist operators who are striving for sustainable development in tourism. There will be more than 350 participants from all over the world making the event the biggest global conference on sustainable destinations. "This is the biggest global conference on sustainable destinations EVER. The GSTC Annual General Members Assembly 2014 in Brazil got 30 participants. The so called “World Summit on Sustainable Tourism+20” in the Basque Country, 2015, got less than 150 participants, 145 of which were from Spain. Only the Eco- and Sustainable Tourism Conferences (ESC) of TIES are bigger, but they are about every aspect of Sustainable Tourism," commented Albert Salman, the main organiser and the director of Green Destinations.

The main partner and co-organiser of the event is Ljubljana Tourism, in cooperation with the Slovenian Tourist Board. The capital of Slovenia won the candidacy for the green conference in part thanks to its title of European Green Capital 2016. The Global Green Destinations Day programme presents the exclusive awards ceremony for the Top 100 Sustainable Destinations 2016, featuring the most successful sustainable tourism destinations in the world, as well as the best providers of green solutions in the tourism sector, who will receive awards for their responsible environmental and social performances.
