Brussels, 26th May 2014
The nine partners of TransCSR are pleased to communicate that their project has been selected as good practice within the PESTO (Promotion and Networking of EU Projects on Sustainable Tourism) project. In that context, the lead applicant KATE will represent the project in the occasion of PESTO project fair in Graz (Austria) in October 2nd – 3rd, 2014.
The project PESTO aims to link many EU projects and different funding programmes on sustainable tourism by developing networks and promotion platforms for project consortia, allowing them to learn from each other and providing them with special opportunities to directly interact with target groups, stakeholders and the public.
Started in October 2013, TransCSR is funded by the European Commission through the Lifelong Learning Programme. It aims at the transparency and acknowledgement of CSR skills in the tourism sector of at least six European countries using the tools of the ECVET system (European Credit system for Vocational Education and Training) and the EQF (European Qualification Framework).
In September 2015, the project will deliver an e-learning tool on CSR skills for the self-evaluation, a Learning Agreement as well as a Memorandum of Understanding which will be formulated for the establishment of the formal acknowledgment of CSR skills.
