An important story to be shared… The precise idea of Creative Switzerland was born exactly two years ago… Our founder Iwona J. Fluda gave a short speech on education at a conference in Geneva. The Powers of Education: creativity, entrepreneurship and intercultural communication became the foundation stones of Creative Switzerland.

The Creative Tourism Award for “Best Creative Destination” goes to… Creative Switzerland!
The fantastic news arrived from FITUR, International Tourism Trade in Madrid (January 24th, 2019), on one of these freezing cold days in Zurich when our only wish was to sit down with a cup of a hot Swiss chocolate and have a philosophical talk about the beauty of creativity and infinite imagination. Overwhelming joy and sincere gratitude filled out our hearts. No, we haven’t expected that.
We just learned that the Brazilian creative tourism network “Recria” (congratulations!) for the Strategy and “Creative Switzerland” for the Destination, convinced the international panel of judges who overcame the challenge to select the awardees among 179 applications, all accrediting a high level of creativity, authenticity, and sustainability. (179 applications!?)
Thank you to the Creative Tourism Network for recognizing our love for creativity and tourism.
The Creative Tourism Awards aim to reward companies, projects and destinations worldwide that bet on the creative tourism to, on the one side, fit an increasing demand of travelers eager to discover a culture by participating in creative activities, and on the other hand, to use it as a lever to create a value chain for the territory. Internationally recognized for its action in favor of more innovative and sustainable tourism, the Creative Tourism Network® works with a panel of prestigious experts to determine and guarantee the respect of the Best Practices of the Creative Tourism.
