The second transnational meeting of the Erasmus+ InterCat project on circular and accessible tourism took place on 11 and 12 April. The meeting, in which the whole consortium participated, took place in Riga (Latvia), organised by the Ecological Future Education association. This consortium meeting was the opportunity to discuss the 2nd output to be implemented by the project, the DiaTool for tourism assessment from the perspective of accessibility and sustainability. In addition, the partners also agreed on the final details for the presentation of the Glossary of terms and good practices on circular and accessible tourism and the plans for the next study visit in Patras, Greece.
In addition, the consortium’s stay in Riga allowed the participants to visit examples of best practices in circular and accessible tourism in the city. On the one hand, they enjoyed a guided visit to the Getlini landfill and the experience at the Riga Museum in the Dark, which allows visitors to experiment with their senses once they have lost their sight.
The New Horizons project coordinator (Italy), the partners Previform (Portugal) and the Fundació Universitat Jaume I-Empresa (Spain) attended the meeting in person. Ergasia (Greece) attended the working sessions remotely. During the next months the partners will work on the new DiaTool and prepare the study visit in Patras (Greece), scheduled from 27 June to 2 July.
