The objective of sustainable tourism development of destinations in the MED area remains a fundamental aim also of the European programming period 2021-2027. The policies and strategies that will be implemented to pursue this goal cannot ignore the use of innovative tools and models - not only technological - for the management of tourist destinations and a careful reading of the post-Covid-19 tourism scenario.

The closing event of the ALTER ECO PLUS Project, funded by the Interreg MED Program 2014-2020, will focus on these issues through the organization of two afternoon meeting sessions. A first session is devoted to collecting experiences and strategies in place of key institutions and stakeholders in the local and Italian tourism sector, with particular reference to the sustainability and competitiveness of tourism in the post-Covid-19 era; the second session aims to strengthen the mainstreaming process of the tools and the experiences of the ALTER ECO PLUS partnership and to take a look at the upcoming projects that can be activated under the MED2021-2027 funding program.
