Circular cultural tourism and its contribution to sustainability

circular cultural tourism ICLEI event 5 october 2023
Ruritage partner ICLEI will host online the next edition of its flagship Breakfast at Sustainability’s. The meeting will take place on 5 October 2023, from 10 to 12 CEST, and will bring together representatives of EU institutions, cultural experts, regional officers, and tourism stakeholders to discuss the unexplored potential of cultural heritage as a driver of circular tourism.
As Europe’s regions are recovering from the impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic on the tourism sector, and as global trends are transforming the travel industry, this is a timely moment to revisit how circular approaches to tourism, human-centred destinations, and heritage-led transformations can contribute to building a sustainable future for all.
