Description of the event: 

After the organisation of a 1 st WINTER MED Engagement Forum in the framework of the Culture and Sustainable Tourism Task Force meeting inJuly 2021, and the introduction of the key results of DestiMED PLUS the 15th ofDecember 2021, the Intermediterranean Commission will organise another meeting of the Task Force on the 25th of May (online) with the main objective of sharing the final results of these two projects which will end on the 30th of June 2022. These two projects respectively aim to promote the transition from the current overexploitation of Mediterranean insular tourist destinations during the summer to an alternative, sustainable and all-year round use of these territories and to improve the levels of integration between regional tourism and conservation policies in Mediterranean protected areas.

This meeting will serve as the 2 nd and final Engagement Forum of the WINTER MED project where the transnational strategy for year-round sustainable tourism and the resulting policy recommendations and MoU will be presented. In the framework of this meeting the 2nd Mediterranean Ecotourism Consortium (MEC) meeting will also be organised and will focus on the joint definition of a policy roadmap for the governance of ecotourism in the Mediterranean. In order to give more food for thought and to allow the participant to leave with solutions adapted to their needs, the Task Force meeting will be completed with a Capacity-building for sustainable tourism implementation in the Mediterranean in connection with the application of the Handbook “Social and EconomicRegeneration in the Mediterranean after the crisis” co-created by the CPMR-IMC and the Union for the Mediterranean (UfM). Participants will be involved in a concrete exercise for the implementation of a transnational strategy for yearround sustainable tourism in the Mediterranean islands and beyond and for the co-creation of a policy roadmap for the development of ecotourism governance in the Mediterranean.
