In May’s webinar, we will have a presentation of a recent experimental EU-funded project focusing on development of a range of participatory tourism products in 8 off-the-beaten-track European destinations.

Participatory tourism is an emerging alternative tourism product that provides unique encounters for tourists to discover, learn and collectively contribute to the local communities they visit. Embodying the concept of heritage communities explored in the recent IE web conference, it is also closely aligned to interpretive principles of first-hand experiences, exchange and accessing deeper meanings.
