On 26 November, around fifty participants joined the 1st Webinar of the EU project SUSTOURISMO co-funded by Interreg ADRION 2014 – 2020 programme.
The event was organized by the Central European Initiative – Executive Secretariat (CEI-ES) to get closer to the tourism-sector-related stakeholders and initiate a fruitful learning process based on the project’s main topic: sustainable mobility for sustainable tourism; it introduced the main objectives and expected results of the project and the lead partner of the project, CERTH/HIT presented the trends in the tourism sector at global and regional level.
Key strategic documents and policies at EU level were summarised by our project partner Institute for Logistics and Transport (ITL) with a scope to identify gaps in daily operation at local level and draft the steps towards the future of ADRION tourism.
The CEI-ES, in cooperation with MATE and Corintea presented current best practices in terms of sustainable mobility and transport that can boost sustainable tourism in the Adriatic Ionian region.
Participants engaged in a very enlightening discussion on local peculiarities regarding sustainable tourism and exchanged ideas for further supporting this field.
This is the first of a series of 4 webinars which will help develop the SUSTOURISMO network and shape the future of ADRION tourism policies.
