The Municipality of Rethymnon obtained the seal after the coordinated efforts of its tourism and programming departments. During the last 10 years, the municipality has been investing in sustainable mobility practices with the support of the EU CIVITAS Destinations program and through the actions of its tourism department, which promotes sustainable development activities related to alternative forms of tourism in Greece and abroad.
