Revitalization of Sustainable Tourism Across Regions in The MEDiterranean

The Catalan Tourism Agency (ACT) is participating as a partner in the new European capitalization project RESTART MED! which will collect best practices, tools and valuable information of projects carried out in the Mediterranean basin in the last 10 years in the field of sustainable tourism to help SMEs.

With a duration of two years, the project envisages the creation of a Mediterranean network of sustainable tourism that will strengthen the existing ones to become a meeting point between public and private actors from all the countries in the area. The initiative also aims to train companies in the Mediterranean tourism sector and support them in creating sustainable tourism experiences in all its aspects, so that they can increase their competitiveness and level of innovation. The aim is to contribute to the economic and social development of the Mediterranean, while strengthening, disseminating and increasing the good practices and sustainable tourism resources that have succeeded in the post-Covid-19 era.

In addition to the ACT, the initiative has five more partners:

In Catalonia, RESTART MED! also has the involvement of the Barcelona Provincial Council and the participation of the Association of Mediterranean Chambers of Commerce and Industry (ASCAME from its catalan name Associació de Cambres de Comerç i Indústria de la Mediterrània).

The project has an overall budget of 1.11 million euros and will run until September 2023. It is 90% co-financed through the ENI CBC Med 2014-2020 Mediterranean Basin Cross-border Cooperation Program 2014-2020. This program is part of the European Neighbourhood Instrument (ENI), which aims to promote cross-border cooperation (CBC) between countries on both shores of the Mediterranean (MED) with the main aim of creating an area of peace, stability, prosperity and good neighbourliness.
