01.07.22

Sant Pau recently renewed its commitment to continuous improvement in the management of cultural activities in the Art Nouveau Site. In an event attended by representatives of the Barcelona City Council, the Chamber of Commerce, the Barcelona Provincial Council, the Institute for Responsible Tourism, and hundreds of entities and companies, the Art Nouveau Site was certificated for the fourth time as part of the Biosphere Sustainable Lifestyle program for tourism.

In 2017, the Institute for Responsible Tourism (ITR) approved the Art Nouveau Site for Biosphere Sustainable Tourism certification in recognition of the responsible, environmentally sustainable, socially inclusive and accessible tourism model shaping the management of cultural activities in this pioneering heritage space. The certification is based on the guidelines of the World Charter for Sustainable Tourism and the 17 Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nation’s 2030 Agenda.
