Bombinhas competes for the second time in the global contest 'TOP 100 Best Stories of Responsible Destinations', created by the Dutch organization Green Destinations. The initiative annually awards 100 stories of good practices that inspire responsible tourism leaders worldwide.

This year, the city competes with the 'Tainha Artisanal Fishing' case. The result will be announced on September 27, at 12:30 pm, at the Annual Green Destinations 2022 Conference, in Athens, Greece. The awards will be streamed live on the Green Destinations YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/c/GreendestinationsInfo. Awarded destinations, in addition to presenting innovative stories with a positive impact, undergo a careful initial assessment, in which they must reach at least 60% compliance with the main sustainability criteria (recognized by the GSTC – Global Council for Sustainable Tourism).

The selected stories receive global visibility and are eligible to be nominated for the Green Destinations Stories Awards, co-organized by GLP Films and presented at ITB Berlin, the world's leading tourism fair.

The opportunity was made possible through a partnership between the Municipality of Bombinhas, through the Department of Tourism and Economic Development – ​​Setur, with the Business Association of Bombinhas – AEMB and the Federation of Business Associations of Santa Catarina – Facisc, through the DEL Turismo program.
