The European Pilgrimage Routes for promoting sustainable and quality tourism in rural areas

UNISCAPE En Route SEMINAR, 4-6 December 2014, Florence, Italy

24 Marzo 2014 | | id:1545


PRESENTATION

 

The pilgrimage routes are created in order to protect cultural and social aspects of today's society and, at the same time, to promote sustainable tourism and quality in Europe, particularly in rural areas and lesser known destinations.

 

Over twenty five years on, this conference invites scholars, researchers, public and private actors in the sector, tour operators, associations and more, to a moment of reflection and sharing to examine the heritage of these routes, and in particular pilgrimage routes, often coinciding with ancient European thoroughfares. The themes proposed to participants are culture and society, landscape, multi-functionality, quality of life, rural tourism, including economic sustainability and methods for promoting tourism, with a view to local and international sustainable development.

GENERAL PROGRAMME

 

The conference will be divided into five sections:

1. Conservation and evolution of the landscape along the routes

2. Life quality and social impact

3. Tourism and local development

4. Sustainability in the rural areas

5. Tools and methods for building a tourist attraction
