On 16 and 17 March 2017, ACR+ took part in the kick off meeting of the MED Community on Sustainable Tourism, which took place in Marseille. The MED Community gathers 14 international projects focused on the development of a sustainable and responsible coastal and maritime tourism in the Mediterranean area. Throughout June 2017 all 14 projects will share outputs on an integrated online platform, thus facilitating integration, mainstreaming and dissemination of actions and results.

During the meeting, ACR+ staff presented the first outputs of Blue Islands project – 14 partners from 8 countries gathered in a systematic effort to properly identify, address and mitigate the effects of the seasonal variation of waste generation on MED islands as an effect of tourism.
