Climate award for Juist

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.
