Kick-off: Sustainability in food and tourism

Why do you suppose sustainable food is essential in combination with sustainable tourism on Crete? This question was dealt with by our project partners BlueContec as part of our project “Crete – on the way to the model for sustainable nutrition”, whom now provided a kick-off training and stimulus for sustainable food on holiday.

Interactive sessions in kick-off training

In the interactive training, which took place on Crete at the beginning of May, they shared with over 100 participants from four hotels insights in questions like “why we should change our food system”. The Local Food Experts also participated in the training and as well answered questions from the participating hotel staff about sustainable food. The following video highlights why solutions for the broken food-system are so important to us.

The TUI management team on Crete also took part in the training. After a very good feedback from the participants, the training will also be offered to other hotels in Crete.


The project

Crete - first steps towards a sustainable food destination

In this project local farmers are brought to a better understanding of sustainable management methods and are connected with local tourism professionals. The link will be used to identify and exploit synergies between food producers and holiday makers.
