Lesvos wins EU's EDEN award 2009 for Greece

The island of Lesvos took the award for the top sustainable tourism destination in Greece for 2009 in the European Commission-sponsored program "European Destinations of Excellence" (EDEN), in which Greece's tourism development ministry is participating for the third consecutive year.

The ministry submitted candidacies for 18 regions of Greece, which were evaluated by a relevant committee.

The purpose of the annual EDEN competition is to highlight the values, diversity and common characteristics of European tourism destinations in which tourism development is sought in ways that ensure a social, cultural, financial and environmental balance.

The theme of this year's competition is "tourism and Protected Areas".
