Review and evaluation of the ATHENA project, insight to the other KAZUIST activities in accessible tourism and European good practices in the field of training were the key items of the meeting agenda.
A European project, "Accessible Tourism for Europe" and its outcomes was presented, i.e. training package consisting of 4 training modules for managers and staff in tourism, including one specific course for B&B facility owners and managers and promoter’s manual – a tool which should help promoters of the accessible tourism with dissemination of the training package within their networks and country.
A discussion on possible European cooperation and future coordination of activities in the field of accessible tourism and training moderated by Mrs. Lilian Mϋller, the President of ENAT took place during the 2nd meeting day.
One of ENAT efforts, activities towards the accessible tourism training certification in line with the European Qualifications Framework was suggested as a relevant theme for the follow-up common project.
