The municipality of Westvoorne has grown into a recreational and natural area in the last decades. This destination has rich fauna and flora thanks to the Voornes Duin, one of the most species-rich dunes of Western Europe. Having a long-term vision, the municipality has declared it will preserve the natural areas while making them more accessible to nature lovers. 92% of the municipality area is already non-buildable and it’s extended to 100% when it comes to the coastline (pavilions only).
This destination participated in the 2019 Sustainable Top 100 Destination Awards at ITB Berlin by submitting a sustainable tourism story. Keywords: fieldlab, industry, circular economy
