On September 5th, our Vies Verdes mobile apps received an important recognition in Europe. We're elated!
The ninth edition of the European Greenways Awards, which took place in Dikli, Vidzeme (Latvia), awarded six green pathways initiatives from different European countries: Latvia, Czech Republic, Austria and Spain. Our client, the Diputació de Girona, spearheaded by the Consorci de les Vies Verdes de Girona, received the second award in the special distinction for "remarkable initiatives".
The European Greenways awards were created in 2003 to create awareness of and give official recognition to innovative projects and solutions which improve information regarding green pathways around Europe and make the visitors' experience more enjoyable.
We developed the Vies Verdes app for the Diputació de Girona in 2018 to be part of the adaptation of their walkable greenways for visually impaired people. The app provides guidance in touristic routes in nature for their visitors. It has received a good adoption and is well-considered around the region of Girona, in Northern Catalonia.
