The Green Key jury gathered on 9.12.2022 to evaluate the application of Marttinen to become a member of Green Key and eventually was awarded with the certificate. Green Key is the worlds leading environmental certificate awarded for tourism operators, which also represents the quality of operations. Green Key is a sign of successful work in the field of sustainability and responsibility and the criteria matches with the demanding expecations of the customers and partners operating with tourism services. Visit Finland also awarded Marttinen with the Sustainable Travel Finland -certificate, which makes us one of the few in Pirkanmaa region with the certificate. We in Marttinen have been working a lot for sustainable development and environment, and thanks to the certificate, our work will be recognised much more in the future.
The Youth Centre in Marttinen is regularly visited by individual customers and groups from Southern Europe or outside Europe, and in that case the winter clothing at the starting point is not the same as in Virrat or in Finland. We want to help all our customers with tips to have a successful experience on their trip to us, so our ESC volunteers (ESC = European Solidarity Corps) Lada and Martin made a video about Finnish winter clothing to help those planning a camp or a trip to Marttien.
You can watch the video on Marttinen’ s YouTube channel, where you can choose the subtitles in Finnish or English. The spoken language of the video is English.
Whether you´re coming for a visit to Marttinen for a camp, camp school, vacation or you are looking to arrange a meeting, conference, parties or educational events you now can explore our island as a whole beforehand simply with your mobile phone or computer screen.
