PROMOTING HEALTHY TOURISM

Promotion of a healthy lifestyle and eco-consciousness in tourism was the focus of the 1st Multilateral Walkshop and 3rd internal thematic meeting within the INSiGHTS project – “Integrated Slow, Green and Healthy Tourism Strategies”.

Partners visited several sites of the region where they received historical and cultural background information during guided tours, and also had the chance to go to a local horse club in Aranđelovac and discuss the experience of hiking-nature sightseeing with the facilitators.

During the official meetings partners discussed the progress of the work packages on Local Strategies, of the Status Quo reports and the next steps within the project. The methodology on organizing walkshops was also presented, followed by a presentation on state-of-the-art good practices from the pilot areas and the wider Danube region. There was also a session for the local stakeholders within the walkshop organized by Regional Economic Development Agency for Šumadija and Pomoravlje from Kragujevac, Serbia.

Within the “Critical Classroom”, partners analysed strengths, weaknesses, threats and opportunities of Plovdiv area and the region of Šumadija and Pomoravlje.

The meeting took place in Aranđelovac, Serbia on the 28th – 30th June 2017 and was hosted by Regional Economic Development Agency for Šumadija and Pomoravlje from Kragujevac, Serbia.

The next bilateral study visit will take place in Slovenia in September 2017 and LAG Central Istria will host the next multilateral meeting in Pazin in October.
