TOURAGE project and Senior Tourism raise interest in Europe


Thursday, May 29, 2014

TOURAGE project was selected among the 20 best European tourism projects that enhance sustainable tourism development. Altogether around 200 EU projects from different funding programmes were evaluated.

TOURAGE project represents especially social and economic sustainability as its objective is to find means to improve tourism industry, enhance economy and employment throughout the year in remote and border regions and to promote active ageing.  

The selection was made by the PESTO project (Promoting and networking of EU projects on sustainable tourism) which aim is to provide a platform for enhancing sustainable tourism and raise awareness about the topic. Evaluation was made by the international PESTO consortium who either work in the field of education and training for sustainable tourism development or who are familiar with the tourist industries’ demands. They evaluated for example the innovativeness and relevance of the projects.  

The nomination means that TOURAGE will participate in the PESTO conference organized in Austria in October. Furthermore, an article about the project will be published in the Focus Europe Magazine, in addition to other promotional and networking activities.

PESTO project is coordinated by European Network for Transfer and Exploitation of EU Project Results (E.N.T.E.R.), nonprofit association which is located in Graz, Austria. Project has been funded with support from the European Commission (Lifelong Learning Programme).
