The best known and most iconic beach of Sirmione, Jamaica beach, obtained the 2023 Blue Flag.
The prestigious international environmental award was presented this morning (May 12) to Mayor Luisa Lavelli at the Italian headquarters of the FEE, Foundation for Environmental Education in Rome.
The award is given to seaside and lakeside resorts that meet specific and rigorous water and beach quality criteria and implement virtuous sustainable land management practices.
This recognition, also obtained thanks to the coordination of Luca Fila and the support of the Comunità del Garda, represents an important element of the tourist offer for Sirmione: it is a quality certificate which certifies the community’s commitment in the management of the coast and beaches in the respect for the environment and nature.
The Blue Flag award is conferred by the FEE, Foundation for Environmental Education, an international organization recognized by UNESCO as a world leader in the field of environmental education and sustainable development and is awarded every year in 49 different countries around the world.
The main objective of the program is to promote sustainable management of the territory in the coastal municipalities through a series of indications that place attention and care for the environment at the basis of political choices.
For the purposes of the evaluation, the quality of the bathing water is the primary criterion: only the localities whose waters are found to be excellent can submit their candidacy. Other significant areas of evaluation include environmental education, waste management, vehicular traffic regulation, safety and beach services.
