The Mediterranean is one of the top tourist destinations in the world because we have a wonderful climate with dry summer and mild winter, an astonishing environment and it is the cradle of civilization. But Mediterranean is as beautiful as it is fragile and Tourism could represent a threaten to the environment.
“We don’t want to stop the growth that tourism can bring to the region, because we need it. Instead, we want to avoid having this tourism-induced growth subside because the environment, which is the Mediterranean’s main attraction, is destroyed” said Sophie Scarvelis, Interreg MED Joint Secretariat.
This video presents the challenge the MED Sustainable Tourism Community is taking on and the key features of our community of projects.
