The first Bluemed Plus Workshop done in Vlora with success

The first BlueMED Plus workshop organized by the partners was successfully completed. The event was hosted by the Municipality of Vlore.

In the context of the BlueMED Plus project, the Vlora Municipality yesterday hosted the first workshop addressed to the local stakeholders. The event was held in hybrid mode (in presence, but simultaneously streamed) focused on the promotion of the development of the cultural diving tourism in this territory by identifying, opening and valorizing new underwater cultural sites to attract national and foreign tourists. The workshop was successfully completed thanks to the participatory approach involving all the local institutions, public bodies, universities, research institutes, diving centers, agencies and touristic operators, which play a fundamental role in the Vlore territory in the conservation and valorization of cultural and touristic resources. The workshop was devoted to the presentation of the Project by prof. Fabio Bruno and to the explanation of the BlueMEd Roadmap and action plan. In this first phase, stakeholders have been involved in collecting data about the local tourist market, the presence of potential accessible underwater cultural sites as well as in providing opinions and ideas for the improvement of the diving tourism offer in the Vlora territory. The success of this first stage, together with the other two workshops in the receiving territories and will be crucial in the BlueMed transferring process and in the customization of the Roadmap.
