The prerequisite for inclusion in the list is an outstanding success story, from which other sustainable tourist destinations can also learn. In 2020, Smart Bike Share and city buses running on Estonian green gas were presented as Tartu’s success stories, earning second place in the Environment and Climate Category. In 2021, Car-Free Avenue, which was recognised as one of the six best in the Environment and Climate Category, was presented as Tartu’s success story. The top three will be announced in March, at the awards ceremony for the Green Destinations Story Awards.
The virtual awards ceremony for the Green Destinations Story Awards will take place in March, at the ITB Berlin International Tourism Fair.
