On 20-21 September 2018 a BLEUTOURMED_C3 project meeting took place in Barcelona (Spain), hosted by the Catalan partner Diputació de Barcelona.

The meeting was an important opportunity to discuss the state of the art of this cooperation project. The main purpose of the meeting was to reflect on how to finalize the policy factsheets on sustainable tourism in the Mediterranean, as well as for defining the logistic and the methodology to be adopted in the next capitalization seminars of the MED Community on Sustainable Tourism. The two events are expected in November 2018 in Marseille and in March 2019 in Croatia.

The AIE team of the Secretariat provided some contributions expecially for the methodology of next seminars and the Working Group 4 “How to address the complexity of the tourism sector, including local actors, decision-makers and consumers? Governance mechanisms to guide a wide variety of stakeholders towards a more sustainable and responsible tourism”.

To complete the exchange of information, the hosted partner, Diputació de Barcelona, provided a detailed presentation on sustainable development of tourism in Barcelona Province, showcasing the local good practices for diversifying the touristic offer and breaking the tourism seasonality.
