The 2nd Community Building Event of the project BleuTourMed will be organised by the MED Sustainable Tourism Community in Athens from 4 to 5 of October 2017, will gather the members of the 14 projects of the Community (ALTER ECO, BLUEISLANDS, BLUEMED, CASTWATER, CO-EVOLVE, CONSUME-LESS, DestiMED, EMbleMatiC, MEDCYCLETOUR, MEDFEST, MITOMED+, ShapeTourism, SIROCCO, TOURISMED) together with BleuTourMed project partners. The Adriatic Ionion Euroregion is one of the six project partners organizing the event.
The objective of the event is to harmonise activities in terms of developing common approaches and strategies and testing approaches through pilot demonstration actions. The participants will have the opportunity to exchange their approaches and methods towards sustainable tourism in the Mediterranean and work together in the two following thematic groups:
- Strengthening sustainable and responsible tourism: Capacity building & stakeholder engagement – Sustainability assessment – Alternative and innovative tourism models;
- Implementing innovative approaches in the Mediterranean coastal and maritime areas (Western Mediterranean, Adriatic-Ionian and Aegean-Eastern Mediterranean regions)
In addition to these thematic working groups, BleuTourMed partners aim at discussing and agreeing with the 14 modular projects on a common declaration listing the MED Sustainable Tourism Community’s priorities for the 3 years of the Community’s lifetime.
