«Sustainable mobility in MED tourist destinations»
Instituto de Estudios Portuarios, Muelle Cánovas, s/n 29001, Málaga (Spain)


What are the hindrances and the opportunities for a sustainable tourism mobility in the Mediterranean area? What are the lessons learnt and the results achieved by the Locations project for the promotion of a sustainable mobility linked to cruise tourism?

We look forward to seeing you in Málaga on 19th September 2019 to discuss about future challenges on #Sustainable tourism mobility and #Onshore/Offshore Sustainability through the voice of eminent keynote speakers, round tables and a study visit to the local cruise terminal, to take advantage of this experience and set up future actions.

A journey through the concrete experiences of small and large Mediterranean port cities (Ravenna, Lisbon, Sète, Limassol, Portimão) exploring different voices and perspectives (tourist associations, cruise lines, local institutions) celebrating a participatory and constructive path.
