The EDEN initiative

EDEN is an initiative promoting sustainable tourism development models across the EU.

The initiative is based on national competitions that take place every other year and result in the selection of a tourist 'destination of excellence' for each participating country.

Through the selection of destinations, EDEN effectively achieves the objective of drawing attention to the values, diversity and common features of European tourist destinations.
