Who we are

BEST MED (Beyond European Sustainable Tourism Med Path) contributes to enhance Mediterranean Governance in the field of sustainable tourism. Its main challenges are to fight against seasonality and the lack of effective cooperation among tourism actors in the Med area, including the citizen active participation on the policies design.

Leaded by the Andalusian Public Foundation El legado andalusí, this project integrates 10 partners from 8 Mediterranean countries representing different actors in the field: national public authorities (Ministry of Tourism of Greece and National Tourism Organisation of Montenegro), regional governments (Lazio Region, Calabria Region and Regional Ministry of Tourism, Regeneration, Justice and Local Administration. Government of Andalusia), business support organisation (Croatian Chamber of Economy), Universities (University of Algarve-School of Management, Hospitality and Tourism and University of Maribor-Faculty of Tourism), a network organisation (Conference of Peripheral Maritime Regions -CPMR).
