Spain’s Sustainable Media Awards

Spain’s Sustainable Media Awards

A celebration of UK Media working towards a future of sustainable travel in Spain

The Spanish Tourist Office is proud to launch the inaugural Spain’s Sustainable Media Awards to celebrate the UK media that best showcase sustainable travel in Spain encompassing social, cultural, economic and environmental sustainability.
