 has launched the EDEN project. Its aims and thus the long-term objectives of the EU could be summarized as follows:
  • to draw attention to the value, diversity and shared characteristics of European touristic destinations
  • to enhance the visibility of the emerging European tourist destinations of excellence, especially the lesser known ones
  • to create a platform for sharing good practices across Europe
  • to award and encourage sustainable forms of tourism
  • to turn the less known places in Europe into all-year-round venues and help decongest over-visited tourist destinations
  • to promote all European countries and regions, and
  • to promote networking between awarded destinations for the purpose of other destinations to adopt sustainable tourism development models.

Each country taking part in the project manages its own selection process during the first half of the year. First of all, they organise a communication campaign to inform all possible candidates about the competition. Destinations taking part have to show that economically viable tourism has been developed based on each year’s EDEN theme. The winning destinations are those that best reflect the chosen theme of the year and that offer a unique tourism experience, in line with sustainable patterns.
In the middle of the year, a winning destination per country is selected on the basis of a set of award criteria established at both European and national level. The names of the winners are communicated to the European Commission

The EDEN editions


Each EDEN edition is developed around an annual theme, chosen by the Commission together with the relevant national tourism bodies. This theme functions as a leitmotif: so far, Rural Tourism (2007), Intangible Heritage (2008), Protected Areas (2009) and Aquatic Tourism (2010) have been the main EDEN themes. The topic for year 2011 has been Tourism and Regeneration of Physical Sites.

Each of the chosen topics serves to highlight different aspects of European regions’ assets and is related to sustainable development in one way or another, whether from a cultural, economic, local involvement or environmental point of view. EDEN topics provide an opportunity for demonstrating the wealth of diversity Europe can offer, including its natural resources, historical heritage, traditional celebrations, local gastronomy and so on.

EDEN in 2011 Tourism and Regeneration of Physical Sites


EDEN in 2011 Tourism and Regeneration of Physical Sites
The 2011 EDEN Award focused on the regeneration of physical sites. The rewarded destinations were those which have regenerated a physical site of their local heritage (e.g. an industrial, transport infrastructure, agricultural or a military site) and converted it into a tourism attraction to be used as a catalyst for wider local regeneration. Twenty-one destinations were officially awarded in Brussels on 27 September 2011.
