Send In Your Nominations For the Montreal MapGuide!
By: Ashley Thompson
Listen up, Franco-Canada-philes. Montreal, the first urban center in the world to sign National Geographic’s Center for Sustainable Destinations‘ Geotourism Charter, is now accepting nominations for CSD’s next MapGuide endeavor.
Now through January 15, the general public is encouraged to participate in creating the Montreal MapGuide, which is set to launch in spring 2009.
MapGuides, poster-sized maps chock full of suggestions that define a sense of place, aim to highlight “sustainable tourism choices to international and domestic tourists.” Categories include culture and traditions, nature and environment, and historic and archaeological sites. This will be the third project of its kind: CSD released the “Yellowstone and Montana” and “Crown of the Continent” MapGuides earlier this year.
To submit your nominations and favorite photos of Montreal to CSD and Montreal’s own Geotourism Council, go here.
