INCIRCLE keeps up the great work!

July 2021

1. What is INCIRCLE?

INCIRCLE is about enhancing circularity in Mediterranean (MED) vulnerable touristic destinations, such as the islands and scarcely inhabited territories. In these areas, the massive tourist flows often cause a wide range of negative impacts and externalities, affecting, among others the quality and availability of natural resources as well as the areas’ attractiveness.

INCIRCLE aims to support these areas to meet the increasing environmental challenges caused by tourist activities by promoting the application of Circular Economy (CE) principles in the tourism sector, preserving the natural resources as well as improving the quality of life of residents and tourists.

2. The call for replicating territories

The public call opened on Monday, 14th of June 2021 and closes on Wednesday, 21st of July 2021.The INCIRCLE project supports territories in the transition towards a more circular tourism economy. The project will select 6 territories and will guide them in the creation of territorial strategies, which will help them increase circularity and sustainability of tourism in their territories to support the relaunch of the sector in a post-covid time.

A webinar focused on the Opportunities for Mediterranean territories to reinforce sustainable tourism after COVID-19 was held on the 15th of June 2021.
