European Institute for Local Development held a meeting with the Municipality of Paleo Faliro and the Deputy Mayor.
During the meeting, the European Institute presented the European MAST project and its objectives. The MAST project contributes to address in a very innovative and practical way the current and expected socio-economic impact that the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has on the UfM region.
The overall objective of the action is to reboot tourism by rethinking and overcoming current paradigms, going towards new sustainable tourism approaches and also to introduce new business ideas, marketing and communication strategies and a renewed dialogue among MSMEs and public authorities.
EILD would like to thank the Municipality of Paleo Faliro for the meeting and the constructive discussion.
The MAST project has been funded by UfM for Employment Promotion and promoted by 5 Mediterranean partners (EILD Ngo – Greece, MACTT Ngo – Malta, UPO – Italy, UMNAGRI – Tunisia, AORADRCS – Morocco). Last month MAST launched an online course, completely free of charge, to offer everyone a short online learning path on sustainable tourism, which will allow the next generation of entrepreneurs to obtain skills and competences to produce new business ideas and/or renew their offer.
All those who will register and follow the course will be able to submit a project or business idea that will be evaluated by the partners of the MAST project. At the end, the best ideas that will be selected will receive a toolkit that will have a business plan and guidelines for sustainable transformation of tourism sector businesses. Please note: the deadline for submission of projects is December 31, 2021.
