The “Vías Verdes y Red Natura 2000” App, developed by the Spanish Railway Foundation, has received the Special Award of the 9th edition of the European Greenways Award, awarded by the European Greenways Association.
The European Greenways Award was established in 2003 and every two years acknowledges the greenways projects that stand out for their excellence and application of best practices.
In this 2019 edition, the international jury, who met in Brussels on the 10th of July, has awarded projects in the “Excellence” and “Exemplary initiatives” categories, and has given a special award to acknowledge an innovative action or product that contributes to improving the information and the experience for tourists.
This special award is the one granted to the Spanish Railway Foundation for its “Vías Verdes y Red Natura 2000” mobile application, which was developed with the support of the Biodiversity Foundation of the Ministry for the Ecological Transition and in collaboration with the University of Seville.
