As a reminder, the Blue Flag Label is a component of the Clean Beaches Programme whose objective is to bring beaches up to environmental standards. It also aims to raise awareness and educate summer vacationers to improve and preserve the environmental quality of our beaches. 102 beaches are registered in the ”Clean Beaches” Programme this year.

Within the framework of this programme, the municipalities are responsible for managing, maintaining and equipping the beaches that fall within their territory. They are supported by the Foundation, which coordinates the Clean Beaches Programme with the relevant ministerial departments as part of the National ”Clean Beaches” Committee, trains local officials and provides them with management and environmental awareness tools to enable them to welcome summer visitors in the best possible conditions. It ultimately evaluates the action undertaken.

In their efforts, the municipalities also receive support from the economic partners mobilized by the Foundation as part of the Clean Beaches Programme. They bring managerial skills and financial support to municipalities.
