#VoicesFromPartners: 13 videos to look behind the scenes of HERIT-DATA
Voices From Partners cover

Each HERIT-DATA partner plays a crucial role to ensure that the project reaches its expected results, and more broadly to contribute to a smarter & more sustainable tourism.

With the video series #VoicesFromPartners, each partner takes the floor (or the screen!) to illustrate his/her role in the project and describe the activities his/her organisation carries out.

The videos were shot in Lisbon during our 5th project meeting.


Some partners illustrate the work planned in the six pilot sites; others describe the IT platform and tool that will help to collect and use data about tourism flows; others explain the work done to identify the indicators based on which the data will be collected, or the studies carried out, such as the Benchmark study about tourism.

All the videos are already available on our YouTube channel, and will be disseminated on a weekly basis on our Twitter and LinkedIn pages.

As 2019 comes to an end, it’s time to have a look at some of the main advancements this year concerning sustainable tourism.

According the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO), tourism continued to increase in 2019. Tourist arrivals between January and June grew by 4% more than in the same period of 2018.
The tourism landscape is rapidly changing, from its industry to tourists’ behaviours, and the debate about tourism development is focusing more and more on its sustainability, besides taking into account numbers alone. According to, in 2019 over half (55%) of global travellers report being more determined to make sustainable travel choices than last year.
At the European level, in 2019 the debate about sustainable tourism has been very rich, and many initiatives have been focusing on this topic. The Mediterranean Sustainable Tourism Convention, held in Barcelona from 5th to 7th June 2019, has been the occasion for the Interreg MED Sustainable Tourism Community to contribute to this broad debate, by showcasing key project results.

The Community also presented the work done to produce four policy factsheets, which will contribute to the debate about the place of tourism in the post-2020 programming period and, more importantly, provide policy recommendation for a more sustainable tourism sector.

2020 will bring other interesting advancements… stay updated and follow us!
