ONMEST 2 aims to develop sustainable tourism around the Mediterranean area, designing trips, which are a mix among main touristic destinations and minor destinations, not known but with a strong touristic value, shedding light on these ones. In fact the partnership is creating in these locations Centers of Local Culture, which are a kind of database of their heritage (culture, nature, history and traditions).

Moreover these Centers are the tool to develop all local communities to become a living out-door museum allowing local and international tourists to interact with local communities. Special customized packages are designed for tourists, divided into two parts, Day and night. During the day tourists will discover the mystic archeological and historic sites that still stand until today. For the evening program, the tourists will experience the local culture through different activities including music, dance and delicious local food, sharing experiences with local community.

Those itineraries are conducted through the Centers of local culture that will focus on delivering local values to the tourists, from traditions and heritage to the different environmental, cultural and historic activities. Through these centers many job opportunities will be created focusing mainly on youth and women as the main actors in this process.

ONMEST 2 includes 7 countries around the Mediterranean area, Italy, Spain, Greece, Lebanon, Jordan, Tunisia, and Palestine.

Tourism is one of the world’s fastest growing industries and is a major source of income for many countries. Being a people-oriented industry, tourism also provides many jobs which have helped revitalise local economies.


However, like other forms of development, tourism can also cause its share of problems, such as social dislocation, loss of cultural heritage, economic dependence and ecological degradation. Learning about the impacts of tourism has led many people to seek more responsible holidays. These include various forms of alternative or sustainable tourism such as: ‘nature-based tourism’, ‘ecotourism’ and ‘cultural tourism’. Sustainable tourism is becoming so popular that some say that what we presently call ‘alternative’ will be the ‘mainstream’ in a decade.


All tourism activities of whatever motivation – holidays, business travel, conferences, adventure travel and ecotourism – need to be sustainable. Sustainable tourism is defined as “tourism that respects both local people and the traveller, cultural heritage and the environment”. It seeks to provide people with an exciting and educational holiday that is also of benefit to the people of the host country.


This module explores the characteristics and objectives of sustainable tourism through a series of case studies. It also helps identify ways in which sustainable tourism can be introduced to students.


OBJECTIVES

  • To appreciate the benefits and problems arising from various forms of tourism, especially in terms of social equity and the environment;

  • To develop a critical awareness of the ways in which tourism can enhance the welfare of people and protect our natural and cultural heritage;

  • To promote a personal commitment to forms of tourism that maximise rather than detract from sustainable human development and environmental quality; and

  • To plan ways of teaching about sustainable tourism.
