The Interreg Euro-MED Academy is the result of the spontaneous collaboration between the eight Thematic Communities and PANORAMED with the support of the Interreg MED Programme’s Joint Secretariat and the coordination of UNIMED – Mediterranean Universities Union as communication lead partner of Sustainable Tourism and Urban Transports Communities.
In this framework, the Sustainable Tourism has recently launched a learning program “#04 Sustainable Tourism and Mobility for the Mediterranean” jointly developed with the Urban Transports community. This program will provide an understanding from theory and real practice of what sustainable tourism is, what challenges destinations sustainability, also deepening on overtourism concept, how destinations are addressing it nowadays, or how they are anticipating to it. Besides, it will also present traditional and innovative practices to ensure sustainable mobility in tourism destinations.
