Fifth meeting in the project "RuralTour: A training programme for sustainable rural tourism"


From September 12 to 14, the team of the "Rural Tour: Training Program for Sustainable Rural Tourism" project met at the fifth meeting of the steering committee. It was coordinated by the Italian Travel and Tourism Federation and took place in person in Rome, Italy. Due to unforeseen reasons, partners from Romania only joined online on the Zoom platform.

At the beginning, partners discussed the current issues of the project and the work to be done in the future, for example, a best practice book and video showcase from rural tourism sector in partner countries, as well as the development of an e-learning program and a mobile application. Financial issues of the project were discussed, as well as a training week for people working in rural tourism, which will take place from November 14 to 18 in Almeria, Spain. The partners also went on a tour to the social cooperative company "Agricoltura Nuova", which is engaged in biodynamic agriculture, producing organic food. We were introduced to the principles and directions of the company's operation by looking at different sections of the company.

All project partners are looking forward to the final meeting in Trabzon, Turkey in December.
