The North Sea island of Juist was one of the successful entrants in Germany's nationwide Kommunaler Klimaschutz Climate Protection competition in 2013. The island is hoping to become carbon-neutral by 2030, and to this end is integrating restaurants and tourism service providers into its eco-friendly activities. Juist is a car-free island that has long had a pioneering approach to sustainability.
Juist is located within the Lower Saxony Wadden Sea National Park, part of the UNESCO World Heritage Wadden Sea. The island makes a great holiday destination for families, but anyone seeking health and wellness is also well catered for.
