EARTH is proud to announce that the SENINTER project, granted by the COSME Programme of the European Commission is officially started! Our members Diesis Coop (Be), KOAN Consultancy (Es), NEC Cerknica (Sl) and AITR (It) are part of the consortium and EARTH is also directly involved!
The Kick-off Meeting, in which the actors planned the very start of the project was held in Brussels on Friday 14th May.
What is SENINTER? This project plans to create a slow and sustainable tourism product targeted and adapted to the seniors travelling with their grandchildren during the low and medium season in Europe.
It plans to create a slow and sustainable tourism product targeted and adapted to the seniors travelling with their grandchildren during the low and medium season in Europe. The children are preferably less than 6 years old, the seniors are preferably retired in order to travel out of the high tourism season which means that they are 55 years old and more.
In that sense, the tourism product will be based on the discovery of the local heritage (tangible and intangible), culture and on meetings with the local community, especially with other seniors and their grandchildren of the destination.
The first step will be the pilot phase, where 15 grand-parents from Slovenia will spend 5 nights and 6 days in Rimini (It) during the touristic low-seasons.
More updates to follow in the next months
