As tourism is considered by the EU Commission a pillar to recover and relaunch the European economy on more sustainable and resilient basis, the Sustainable Tourism Community organizes a virtual meeting on 14 December 2020 from 10h to 11h30, to address the future of sustainable tourism in the Next Generation EU, with a focus on REACT-EU instrument, and the Interreg MED new programming period 2021-27.

With the contribution of our guest-speakers from DG Regio and Interreg MED Programme we will present the main opportunities for continuing developing sustainable tourism tools and strategies in the framework of transnational territorial cooperation projects, via Interreg MED Programme and REACT-EU, an instrument specifically devised to respond to the needs of the most affected populations and regions.

By the same occasion, the Sustainable Tourism Community’s partnership will present the results achieved in 2020 notwithstanding all the difficulties we all have to put up with, and it will briefly present the new partnership for leading the transferring and mainstreaming activities foreseen in 2021.
