Fondazzjoni Temi Zammit is one of the partners of Heland project. The foundation together with the rest of the partners aims at encouraging concerned bodies to exploit the Mediterranean common space in a sustainable manner, using innovative technologies that could reinforce the practice of a sustainable tourism.
The Project can generate employment and income, while having a low impact on environment and local cultures.
The Project is focused on a typically Mediterranean subject, i.e. Tourism, and it strives to establish a common approach for sustainable tourism throughthe application of cutting-edge technologies in heritage and landscape protection.
Setting up a cross-border network of universities, research centres, professionals, SMEs and regional institutions, the project will be able to revitalise a mature industry, where innovations are met with resistance and scepticism.
