This project aims to develop, structure and share professional knowledge about local-based sustainable tourism 4.0., European VET providers and educational institutions that will be involved in a professional training and self-training process in order to face the challenges of contemporary tourism.
On August 27 and 28 the second transnational meeting took place online due to COVID restrictions.
The first day of the meeting was dedicated to financial and management aspects: Partners talked about the conclusions and recommendations sent by report by the Polish National Agency after their on-line monitoring visit held in June, about documentation sent by the partners for the next monitoring report and an overview of the financial situation was also made.
The second day was dedicated to the development of the second intellectual output and specifically to set the A1 and A2.
Partners were divided in two groups, one focusing on a shared definition of local-based sustainable tourism 4.0 (starting from each partner’s one);
And group 2 working on a set of best practices responding to VET educational needs.
At the end of the 2nd TM, partners had produced the “milestones” for the future educational units and had planned further activities to be carried on.
The meeting was a great occasion for all the partners to reinforce their partnership, their capacity to work in teams and to adapt to each others’ needs and ways of responding to the teamwork.
Next meeting is set to be on September 10, 2020.
