The representatives of these destinations visited Finestrat on June 4 to find out the actions which the Finestrat Council took to achieve the 2024 Sustainable Town Award. 

The Award celebrated Finestrat´s commitment to renewable energy, sustainability efficiency and waste reduction, marking it as an outstanding success in the EU. 

The first Deputy Mayor, Nati Algado, welcomed the attendees, highlighting some of the town´s achievements: “We are Green Flag for the high recycling of glass containers. We are pioneers in preserving our beach without smoke. We have more than 50% of our municipal area under environmental protection.”

The representatives attended practical demonstrations of Finestrat´s security and management of natural spaces, including the Puig Campana, and visited Finestrat´s impressive ecological gardens.

All to preserve our identity and build, together, a sustainable future,” emohasised the Mayor, sharing the projects which contributed to Finestrat´s success.
