VERA council has made a commitment to promoting sustainability and responsibility in Mediterranean maritime and coastal region tourism.
A local authority delegation travelled to Livorno in Italy for the Mitomed+ project final conference, where they put Vera’s name to a Memorandum of Understanding.
The document reinforces commitment to sustainable development in tourist activities around the Med, and is designed to guarantee the dynamic of transnational and multilateral cooperation, initiated in 2007.
The aim is to move forward on joint efforts which led to better management of tourism polices for a highly competitive region, promoting an exchange of knowledge and adopting the recommendations and management models which arise from the project.
The Mitomed+ project comes under the Interreg MED programme, which brings together 13 north Mediterranean coast nations to work together for sustainable growth in the region. It has a duration of 36 months and a €2.65 million budget, which is 85 per cent financed by the European Union.
