Tools, finance, opportunities and bottlenecks towards a circular and sustainable tourism
InCircle project Final Event
The InCircle final event is designed to connect territories that want to increase the circularity of their tourism with experts on sustainable tourism, organisations and technicians that can help them to achieve this aim and offer them all the developed InCircle tools, as well as the good practices and hands-on knowledge acquired by all 11 participating destinations.
Morning session – Sustainable Tourism in the mediterranean: current situation and circularity increase: dedicated to assess the current status of Mediterranean Tourism. This session will bring in the point of view of experts and the experience of different territories on which are the challenges, bottlenecks and opportunities to increase the circularity and sustainability of the territories. Participants will learn how can InCircle tools help them to reach this objective.
Afternoon networking workshop – Sustainable tourism project funding and seedlings: will consist on a highly-interactive working group session that will bring together territories (provincial, counties, city councils, regions or others), with technicians and experts on sustainable tourism, which after learning which funding opportunities for sustainable tourism projects are available, will work together in the “ProCIRCLE laboratory” to design new solutions, good practices and projects for a circular Mediterranean tourism.
The Interreg-Med InCircle Project aims to enhance the sustainability and attractiveness of MED touristic insular and low-density areas through circular tourism, preserving the quality of natural resources and improving the quality of life of residents and tourists.
Eleven MED territories developed strategies aiming at their transition towards a more circular tourism by applying the InCircle tools, which have helped to assess the current circularity status of each territory,
stablish a working framework, develop successful participatory processes to contribute to the strategy and evaluate the resulting strategies.
In addition, the project has implemented 5 big-scale and 6 small pilot actions that have brought to each territory tangible good-practices to walk towards a common objective of increasing circularity and sustainability of touristic activities.
