TOWARDS POLICY RECOMMENDATIONS ON SUSTAINABLE TOURISM: SHAPING THE RESULTS OF THE MED COMMUNITY

Workshops of the MED Sustainable Tourism Community

The MED Sustainable Tourism Community gathered on 27 and 28 March in Split (Croatia).  Two workshops were organised to work together towards the drafting of the policy recommendations:

In the first one participants worked on how to shape their results in view of the Community final conference scheduled for next 5 and 6 June in Barcelona (Spain). Modular projects had the opportunity to identify priorities of capitalisation actions and how to harmonise their final and most important tangible outputs as a community. They also presented established synergies and the follow-up activities of their projects towards the end of the testing period and the beginning of the capitalization and transferring period.

The second one was oriented towards the finalisation of the 'policy factsheets' of the four Working Groups, composed by modular Project representatives, capitalisation experts from the modular projects, external experts, and policy-makers. This workshop was the final step of the activities of the Working Groups, who met for the first time in Marseille and via two webinars, which contributed to the production of the policy recommendations to be presented at the final conference of the Community.

During both sessions, the MED Sustainable Tourism Community highlighted the importance of strengthening relations with PANORAMED since it has a Top-down approach relevant to the context of the common framework for the MED area sustainable tourism.
