IMPACTOUR Newsletter no. 2. December 2020.

Welcome to this 2nd edition of the IMPACTOUR Newsletter, marking the end of the first year of the project.

This Newsletter puts a focus on the impact of COVID-19 on cultural tourism. It presents an overview of some of the impacts for COVID-19 on cultural tourism worldwide and our recent Webinar with the European “Pilot Destinations”, learning from our collaborating teams how they have tackled “the year of COVID”, how businesses and communities were impacted and the strategies that they have employed to continue their relationship with visitors.

Our topical Guest Article is written by IMPACTOUR Advisory Board Member, Professor Greg Richards, who delves into the concept of “resilience” and highlights the power of “creative tourism” as a way forward for tourism and communities.

Project partners, Transromanica and Tecnalia present their organisations, aims and objectives as participants in the IMPACTOUR project.
