Last March, NECSTouR and Turismo Lanzarote jointly organised the Masterclass 'Empowering Destination Leaders to Deliver Sustainability', gathering 18 regions from 8 European countries. With immense gratitude, we look back at this event which brings us another step further in securing sustainable tourism.
Weinvite you to participate in the NECSTouR PROJECTS INFO DAY: 'LIFE PROGRAMME', an online event on Thursday 27 April from 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm CET on the calls for proposals of 2023.
This exclusive info session for NECSTouR members only will be the opportunity to discover how the LIFE programme can benefit from the tourism sector by analysing the calls for proposals with expert speakers.
In the framework of our next Board of Directors meeting and the European Tourism Day, NECSTouR is organising an afternoon dedicated to Thematic Workshops on Thursday 4th of Mayfrom 14:00 to 17:00 CET in a hybrid format.
We are kindly inviting you to come to NECSTouR's office - Visit Flanders, Grasmarkt 61 in Brussels - to share a networking lunch from 13:00.
The programme includes the two following workshops:
After a six-year mandate of Catalonia Presidency, Andalusia has taken seat of the NECSTouR Presidency until March 2023. NECSTouR is thankful for the solid leadership and actions Andalucia has taken. From 1 April 2023, Peter De Wilde chairs NECSTouR, the network uniting more than 40 top European regional destinations, on behalf of Flanders. Through interregional cooperation, NECSTouR seeks to influence European decision-making related to tourism.
NECSTouR, the Network of European Regions for Sustainable and Competitive Tourism, and SPEL-Lanzarote, the organisation responsible for the tourism promotion of Lanzarote, are committed to “Empowering Destination Leaders to Deliver Sustainability” in a joint Masterclass on 14-16 March 2023 in Lanzarote. The masterclass will provide destination leaders with knowledge and practical tools to deliver the necessary action for tackling three major common challenges: reducing seasonality, measuring tourism’s carbon footprint, and fostering tourism’s climate action.
In 2018, the Barcelona Declaration “Better Places to Live Better Places to Visit” was created from the willingness of NECSTouR members to respond to the residents’ concerns about the uses of territorial assets for tourism activity.
