To mark the 10th year of Global Greening and to celebrate this unique global campaign, Tourism Ireland is launching a new book, called Ireland’s Greening of the World.

It tells the story of Tourism Ireland’s Global Greening since it began in 2010 and how it has since captured the imagination of people everywhere.
