On November 17th, Maria Loureiro de Lemos, Green Up 2020/2021 Coordinator, spoke about Tourism, Innovation and Sustainability. When presenting the 2027 Tourism Strategy she said that this document is the work basis for the future of tourism, as it is a sector that is in constant transformation.
It is a 10-year strategic reference (2017-2027) that states priorities and actions, and establishes public policies. Maria also addressed the + Sustainable Tourism 20- 23 plan as a document with concrete actions based on sustainability. The path to sustainability is based on the appropriate use of resources and the future impact both at economic and social levels. This initiative also included a reference to the Green UP program.
the Green UP program is promoted by Territórios Criativos and Tourism of Portugal and is for those who have innovative ideas for B2B or B2C solutions, which have a positive impact on the environment, society and economy, and that value natural resources. Entrepreneurs with qualifications in the area of Tourism, even at the 12th grade, CTESP, Bachelor or Master, with ideas that offer innovative solutions can apply.
