Yesterday, Wednesday, May 11, 2016, at the National Research Council of Rome, was held the award ceremony of the 2016 Blue Flag. Framura could not miss this event! Its crystal clear sea is in fact rewarded since many editions and this will be the fourth consecutive award! This environmental certification is internationally recognized since 1987 and it is an award for the administrations of coastal municipalities that meet criteria relating to sustainable land management, with particular reference to the marine ecosystem protection. The evaluation of the candidatures follows a procedural course certified, according to the Quality Management System ISO 9001: 2008.The areas of interest are four:
1) Water quality
2) Environmental education and information
3) Environmental management
4) Services and security
Another very important finding is the affirmation of the Liguria Region as leader in Italy, with 25 places awarded. Among them, in addition to Framura, there are two other towns of Baie Del Levante, with the reaffirmation of Moneglia and the new entrance of Levanto.
