Blue Flag in Japan

Sophie Bachet Granados, Blue Flag International Director, was one of the key-speakers at the Blue Flag conference in Kamakura, Japan. Both municipalities, Kamakura and Takahama, working hard to obtain the eco-label for the first time in Japan were present, and shared valuable information, leading to great discussions. 

The next day a beach clean-up was organised by Shonan-Vision, followed by some environmental education activity by FEE Japan and Blue Flag International.  A great experience for our teams in Kamakura and Takahama, who with their hard work will hopefully be the first Asian sites to be awarded with the Blue Flag in 2016! Keep up the good work!

The Mayor of Kamakura, in Japan received the Blue Flag National Operator for Japan, Shoko Itoh and the Blue Flag International Director, Sophie Bachet Granados, to discuss strategy and vision for the future. It is a great step which the Mayor has committed to last year, and all his teams as well as the other stakeholders are working hard towards complying with all International standards for July 2016.
