There will be no future for tourism if sustainability and international collaboration are not part of the solution. Before officially closing, the BLUEISLANDS project organised an online meeting on sustainable tourism and circular economy. A written report and the recording of the event are available online. The report concludes with the take-away from MEP Maria Spyraki, host of the meeting, who highlighted the importance of understanding that tourism must be changed in regards of services, consumer models, and touristic residences and called for investing in circularity as an answer. 

The project is now over but its outcomes are continuing to spread. With the objective to tackle the seasonal variation of waste as an effect of tourism in Mediterranean islands, the Interreg Med BLUEISLANDS consortium carried out research activities, pilot actions, capacity building workshops and awareness raising campaigns. The three-year-long project highlighted that knowledge about the negative impact of tourism is out there and several small-scale pilot activities have been showing potential solutions to address it. The most essential results are summarised in a booklet available in English and French and in a video.
