The FEE has announced the Italian seaside resorts attentive to the environment and people. Let’s find them out together!
Summer is very close now and, if you are a bit like me, this means above all sea, sea, and SEA! But where to go, considering the infinite possibilities that Italy offers us? The Blue Flags, decreed by FEE (Foundation for Environmental Education), come to our aid. These are all those seaside resorts, and lakes, which each year stand out for having clean and unpolluted waters and beaches, as well as well organized and full of services.
This year there are 427 Blue Flags, selected through a careful analysis that examines more than 30 indicators, which are periodically updated. There is, for example, waste management, the presence of cycle paths and pedestrian areas, purification plants, water quality, the promotion of public and sustainable means of transport. From this year, one of the indicators also studies the inclusiveness of the beaches.
