MITOMED+ project meeting took place in Marbella on 8th of May, 2019. Being involved fully in the capitalisation phase activities, partners discussed mainly about the organisation of policy learning seminars that will take place in May-June and the finalisation of MITOMED+ Management Model.
Policy learning seminars will involve high-level policy makers and experts community from destinations involved in pilot activities as well as new destinations that want to implement MITOMED+ tools and policies. Project partners had to agree on an methodology that will assure the full involvement and uptake of project results. A participative approach that includes working groups and discussions as well as study visits to pilot sites will guarantee the best result.
Several new destinations in Italy, Spain and Croatia already signed an agreement with the project and are involved in implementation and use of MITOMED+ sustainable tourism indicators.
Booth these activities will serve in the following months to refine the MED Maritime and Coastal tourism management model, that will take on lessons learned from MITOMED+ pilot actions and several past and ongoing EU funded projects.
