Community Information

Every Community is a travel destination. This means that its lifestyle can be affected for better or for worse by the influx of tourists. It should have a development plan to make sure that the result is in its long-term interest and sustainable. Many cities are devising their own local Agenda 21 programmes for this purpose.

Green Globe 21 Certification helps Communities benefit from Travel & Tourism in a way that contributes to their overall sustainable development. It involves all interested community and tourism stakeholders, assesses destination and visitor needs, adapts global certification standards to local conditions, draws up and supports an Environmental Management System, helps source funding and provides independent verification.

This process is progressive over time. It is based on realistic practical community driven actions. It leads to the kind of sustainable tourism development, which engages and benefits both visitors and residents.
