NECSTouR 2016 AGM

Fondacioni Europa participated since the beginning to NECSTouR and this year  the Annual General Assembly was quite interesting.

There Necstour Strategy was designed with the contribution of every participant and there are a lot of ambitious actions to be implemented.

There are some news.

First, a specific NECSTOUR group should start working on ETIS – European Tourism Indicator System in closer cooperation with European Institutions.

We already knew that UNWTO declared 2017 as the International Year of Sustainable Tourism for Development (check here) and there are a lot of chances to support this initiative.

We were provided with a preview by Commissioner Navracsics (picture above) that 2018 was declared European Year for Cultural Heritage and there is a plenty of initiatives that we can jointly implement.

Mrs. Sonia Trampetti from CNR was appointed Chairman of the Academic Committee at NECSTouR and we at Fondacioni Europa support her and wishe her the best results.

In conclusion, I can also tell that beyond all the efforts from NECSTouR, I perceived more political engagement around tourism that, in these years, was neglected.

Notwithstanding, there still a lot that must be done and at Fondacioni Europa we are at work!
