Sustainable mobility in MED tourist destinations

Save the date for Locations final event in Málaga (Spain) on 19th September 2019.

What are the hindrances and the opportunities for a sustainable tourism mobility in the Mediterranean area? What are the lessons learnt and the results achieved by the Locations project for the promotion of a sustainable mobility linked to cruise tourism?
