Look­ing for a so­cially re­spon­si­ble off the beaten trail des­ti­na­tion f or this sum­mer? It seems dif­fi­cult to de­cide how to spend your hol­i­days at times but trav­el­ling to a so­cially re­spon­si­ble city not only min­i­mizes your im­pact on the en­vi­ron­ment but can be a new ex­cit­ing adventure as well! One des­ti­na­tion that could be a great city to visit i s Ljubl­jana, Slove­nia. The city was re­cently named the Euro­pean Green Cap­i­tal 2016 by the Euro­pean En­vi­ron­ment Agency. Ap­pli­cants for the dis­tinc­tion must demon­strate that re­spect for the en­vi­ron­ment; ex­cel­lent qual­ity of life and eco­nomic growth can all be suc­cess­fully com­bined in city life. The city was rec­og­nized for rais­ing en­vi­ron­men­tal aware­ness. Ljubl­jana also has a vi­able new sus­tain­abil­ity strat­egy ‘Vi­sion 2025’. This new strat­egy en­com­passes a com­bi­na­tion of plans to i mprove en­vi­ron­men­tal pro­tec­tion, mo­bil­ity, en­ergy and elec­tric trans­port.
