Our main aim & goals
All the countries involved, despite the differences in their legal framework and site-specific peculiarities, will develop a unique business model: in fact, TOURISMED aims to create a single brand as a result of three years of transnational activities, research and testing.
The differences in the legal framework, or in the past fishing experiences of the countries should be seen as an advantage, an opportunity to take the best practices from each partner in order to create an efficient business model which needs to be transferable and replicable in other areas. The Mediterranean zone has a lot of similarities as well, not only differences, and the benefit of being a community and of being part of a multiple partner project should be used.
TOURISMED PLUS specific objetives are as follows:
- To capitalise the “fishing tourism business model” developed within the TOURISMED project into regional and local policies
- To empower policy makers in adopting sustainable-based development strategies in their territories, trough the involvement of local stakeholders.
- To contribute to local economies through innovative and alternative eco-tourism products
