DestiMED Plus project and the MEET Network are inviting media and outbound tour operators to participate in our immersive ecotourism experiences in Mediterranean Protected Areas! Are you interested in joining us this spring? Read on to find out how you can apply for our FAM trips.

All the destinations participating in these spring 2022 FAM trips have gone through a rigorous sustainability assessment and testing following the MEET Model, which ensures local participation, good governance and alignment with the conservation objectives of the protected area. In these packages you will find a balance of cultural, soft adventure and conservation activities, authentic accommodations and locally-sourced food, underpinned by storytelling and interpretation of the exceptional treasures of the Mediterranean. These packages will be included in the MEET Catalogue of Experiences, which already features 13 destinations with market ready tours.

About DestiMED PLUS and the MEET Network

DestiMED PLUS is a cross-border co-operative ecotourism project funded by the European Union (in the framework of the InterregMED), and is currently in its final months of activities. DestiMED PLUS supports the MEET Network, an independent organisation. During 2020 and 2021, sustainable tourism packages were created following a participative approach to involve and benefit local communities in 9 protected areas across several Mediterranean countries (Spain, France, Italy, Croatia, Albania and Greece). In the case of the Bahía de Cádiz Natural Park, this initiative is supported by the ENI CBC MED MedArtSal project and IUCN Med thanks to the support from the MAVA Foundation.
