About

Catalonia has been co-leading, in the framework of NECSTouR, the initiative Better Places to Live Better Places to Visit.

 

This initiative was born in 2018 due to the willingness of NECSTouR members to respond to the residents’ concerns about the uses of territorial assets (cultural and environmental) for tourism activity.

 

Since then, the wellbeing of the local community, as well as the climate emergency and business innovation has been driving the transformation of NECSTouR members’ tourism strategies. This is also reflected in their governance models and marketing focus, moving from a sustainable tourism approach to a regenerative, value-driven model.

 

Considering this important moment of reflection and transformation that tourism managing authorities and DMOs are having, Catalonia and NECSTouR would like to facilitate a day of reflection aiming to inspire, share and learn how tourism destinations and businesses are working towards a “value driven” tourism model which contributes to the wellbeing of the community (society, environment and business), while also contributing to the implementation of the European Commission's recently released Tourism Transition Pathways.

 

The event will include examples from experienced destinations who are paving the way through their good practices, committed businesses who acknowledge that a value driven business is also economically viable, and EU and international experts from organisations such as European Commission, European Tourism Association (ETOA), European Travel Commission (ETC), Europa Nostra and Travel Foundation.

          

 

The event will be a space for participants to learn and be inspired about a transformative tourism model based on a value driven approach, while contributing to the European Commission's Tourism Transition Pathways.
