The European Commission is organising the joint conference on ETIS and ‘Managing and promoting sustainable and accessible tourism destinations’.
The event aims to present the assessment of the ETIS pilot phases (2013 and 2014) carried out for several destinations across Europe, with a focus on accessible tourism.
A parallel workshop with an accessible tourism world café will also take place.
The Commission will provide its recommendations and suggested improvements for the ETIS toolkit (made with the support of the ETIS pool of experts), including examples of best practices from destinations on sustainability and accessibility.
The audience will be informed about potential synergies between ETIS and the environmental tool, EMAS (the European Eco-management and Audit Scheme), and the European Environmental Agency. They will also be made aware of possible interactions between ETIS and European or international organisations such as the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO), the Global Sustainable Tourism Council, the Network of European Regions for a Sustainable and Competitive Tourism, Europarc and the European Network for Accessible Tourism.
