#MEDTourism2019 #EUinmyRegion #PublicPrivate4Tourism #SustainableTourism
(Rome, 21 May 2019) Public-private partnerships in tourism are implemented and manage to adequately promote their destinations. However, more is needed in particular, in terms of the involvement of the private sector in sustainable tourism programs and policies. In the framework of the Mediterranean Sustainable Tourism Convention 2019, a workshop will be dedicated to the involvement of the private sector in tourism sustainability. A lot of questions are pending and the workshop will try to address some of them. Is the sustainability of the destination a purely public matter? Do the tourism activities’ impact on the territory and the local community call for a shared responsibility between the public and the private sectors?
The workshop will be moderated by Mr. Jordi Ficapal, Director of The Responsible Tourism And Hospitality Chair at the School of Tourism And Hospitality Management Sant Ignasi (Ramon Llull University). It will feature different speakers:
The Convention is organised by the Barcelona Provincial Council and the BleuTourMed horizontal project of the MED Sustainable Tourism Community in partnership with CETT – UB (School of Tourism, Hospitality and Gastronomy of the University of Barcelona) and the Hotel Alimara. HostelTur and SmartTravelNews are media partners of the Convention.
