This workshop will also look at how a destination can position itself as a "Green Destination" with a particular focus on the opportunity Bunratty Village has.  Where a destination is part of the Tidy Towns programme a Green Destination should enable it to secure multiple extra points in the Sustainable Waste and Resource Management Category.
