Feeling proud that our hard work was acknowledged, we started meeting the criteria. One important thing every applicant needs to do is to complete the Green Destinations training.

This certificate is like a valuable pat on the back, showing that our destination is growing in the right way. It’s also a reminder for us to keep going in the same positive direction.”

They all gave them important info and support to make sure we were doing things the right way.
