Project meeting and study visit Girona

The 12th Mitomed + project meeting in held in Girona on 24-25 January 2019 was a meeting full of results where all the project partners took part. Testing and dissemination activities were carried out during the fourth semester in various tourist destinations involved. Once again the importance of coordinating sustainable M&C tourism model strategies to a wider transnational level was emphasized.

The first day of the meeting was focused on the relevance of the use of the Indicators Open Platform as a knowledge support tool, on the possibility of updating the platform in a subsequent phase in order to allow even more the involvement of other stakeholders.

The discussion then continued on pilot 2, "Green beach model", where the importance of coordinating the activities with other operators was highlighted to support the destinations in a better sustainable management of M&C tourism. During the meeting the successive activities have been defined which are part of the capitalization phase that the partnership will have to support.

The day after, the project partnership participated in the inauguration of Green Beach in Sant Antoni de Calonge (Costa Brava), where city council authorities, the press and journalists were present. During the meeting the authorities illustrated the interventions carried out on the Torre Valentina beach.
