Minorities and tourism - development of tourist at.. (MIN-TOUR)
Minorities and tourism - development of tourist attractions and joint promotion of the cross-border territory
Start date: Nov 30, 2004,
End date: Sep 29, 2007
MIN-TOUR stems from the shared need to enhance the tourist resources available to the Italian minority in Slovenia and the Slovenian minority in Italy. A detailed analysis of the needs of this territory and of its tourist development opportunities must aim at the enhancement, the consolidation and the improvement of tourist activities in the whole area, with a view to environmental sustainability, differentiation and innovation of tourist products, thus contributing to enhancing the natural, historical, and cultural heritage of the area where the Minorities reside. The aim is to create a tourist offer reconciling economic development and the protection of the environmental ecosystem, using and improving the existing infrastructures, promoting innovative tourist services and enhancing some interesting destinations which so far have been neglected. The offer is presented jointly, highlighting the peculiarity of the territory and its connection with the local population. Following the mapping of available naturalistic, historical cultural and artistic resources, through the active participating of the organisations representing the two Minorities, tourist packages will be created for a stay of one to six days.
