MEDiteranean CYcle route for sustainable coastal TOURism
The overall objective of the project is to use EuroVelo8 as a tool to influence regional and national policies in favour of sustainable and responsible tourism, providing transnational solutions in coastal areas across the Mediterranean.
The main outputs will be action plans and policy recommendations (to generate investments in the route conditions); pilot actions (to test the proposed developments); and updated information and promotion related to EuroVelo 8 (to attract visitors). In this way, the project will benefit national, regional and local authorities, service providers and, ultimately, cycle tourists. Taking a transnational approach will enable common challenges (e.g. lack of route infrastructure, missing cycling friendly services, weak branding and promotion) to be tackled together and best practices to be shared, thereby avoiding duplication and increasing the effectiveness and positive social, economic and environmental impacts.
