New edition of the Edelweiss Awards, which recognise excellence in sustainable tourism in Aragon, Spain and the world.
The Edelweiss Awards were created with the aim of contributing to the development of sustainable tourism in Aragon and rewarding the initiatives that are being carried out, with the idea of giving visibility and raising awareness about sustainable tourism.
The jury is made up of representatives of different institutions and entities of the tourism sector and experts in sustainable and responsible tourism at national and international level, including Manolo Molina Espinosa, director of Hosteltur, Mr. Enrique Martínez Marín, President of Segittur, Ms. Clara Arpa, President of the Spanish Network of the United Nations Global Compact and Mr. Patricio Azcárate, Secretary General of the Responsible Tourism Institute.
In this new edition, in line with the national strategy for sustainable tourism development, the Edelweiss Awards have adapted their form to contribute to the familiarisation with the Tourism Sustainability Plans in Destinations, so that this year, the applications are uploaded to a very simple and easy to complete platform that will present to the members of the jury the different projects presented according to the chosen category.

The Sustainable Tourism Business Cluster is a non-profit organisation that has as one of its main objectives to create a platform for the sector to develop common initiatives to strengthen the tourism sector in Aragon, especially that which guarantees sustainability as part of its offer.
The aim is to give greater regional, national and international visibility to Sustainable Tourism in Aragon in order to consolidate current markets and access new opportunities, positioning itself as a proposal for the demand of those travellers who seek to align their travel experiences with their way of life.
The awards are aimed at all companies in the tourism sector, both public and private (restaurants, hotels, tourism companies...), public administrations (city councils, counties, provincial councils...), institutions, NGOs (associations, foundations...) and government bodies related to tourism.
