GTI Awards 2020 & Conclusions

Back to the agenda


By disseminating knowledge and best practices we accelerate the sustainability and self-sufficiency of islands and remote locations, acting as a catalyst in relations between private and public stakeholders. Islands are laboratories of innovation and indeed can indicate the path to decarbonization to the mainland. The 6th Greening the Islands Awards, with applications from islands’ administrations all around the world related to Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency, Sustainable Mobility, Water, Waste, Agriculture, Sustainable tourism, are the occasion to identify and disseminate innovative and replicable best practices in the field of sustainability. The prestigious jury will evaluate the best projects, call attention to the importance of replicating best practices and explain how they can be divulgated in terms of policy and communications.
