Sustainable Tourism Community Rebooted // Salou, Tarragona - Spain // 2-4 March 2020
The Sustainable Tourism Community - an Interreg MED initiative co-funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) - has been launched in November 2016 for a three-year period and in October 2019 it has been renewed and enriched with five new territorial cooperation projects. The Community can now rely on 22 territorial cooperation projects and almost 300 organisations (public authorities, private companies, universities, NGOs and international organisations) active in twelve European-Mediterranean coastal areas to promote sustainable tourism by capitalizing on tools and good practices developed by its projects. Besides, two Strategic Projects, approved in October 2019, focusing on governance of sustainable tourism will join forces with the Community to make tourism a real driver for inclusive and sustainable growth.
The renewed Sustainable Tourism Community will meet for its “Kick-off Meeting” in Salou (Tarragona - Spain) 3rd - 4th March 2020:
_ To welcome new projects to the Community and to start building connections with closed projects through community-building activities.
_ To identify transferring practices put in place by modular projects to feed the discussions at MED Programme level.
_ To get knowledge about the capitalisation action plan of the Community and to engage modular projects in mainstreaming activities that will be carried-out in the coming months.
The MED Sustainable Tourism community is coordinated by DIBA - Barcelona Provincial Council (Barcelona, Spain), in partnership with UNIMED - Mediterranean Universities Union (Rome, Italy), University of Thessaly (Thessaly, Greece), NECSTouR - Network of European Regions or Sustainable and Competitive Tourism (Brussels, Belgium), Arco Latino, a network of local public authorities (Tarragona, Spain), Plan Bleu UNEP MAP, the Regional Activity Centre of Mediterranean Action Plan (Marseille, France), Adriatic and Ionian Euroregion (Pula, Croatia) and RDA Green Karst Regional Development Agency (Pivka, Slovenia).
