The day and the participatory workshop were another action of the European NAUTILUS project which aims to create a training and certification program for professionals in marine sports tourism.

A two-day event dedicated to the future of Maritime and Coastal Tourism was organized by the project ‘NAUTILUS‘ funded by the European Union and the European Maritime and Fisheries Structural and Investment Fund (EMFF). The conference and the first participatory foresight workshop took place on November 10 and 11, 2022, in Athens, with the participation of representatives from organizations, universities, research centers and companies dealing with and specializing in coastal and marine tourism. Through this event, upcoming trends, needs, concerns and career opportunities were highlighted.

The information from a representative of the European Union about future support possibilities and financial tools from the European Union was also important.

On the second day, the participants had the opportunity to interact through a participatory foresight workshop, organized by Dr. Epaminondas Christofilopoulos, Chief Scientific Advisor of the Special Secretariat for Long-Term Planning and holder of the UNESCO Chair on Futures Research, at the ITE Technology and Research Foundation /ACT.

In an ever-changing world, the workshop was a different way of approaching both the present and the future. Through specific tools, methodologies were applied that helped the public to navigate different futures, through possible scenarios of the environment in the Mediterranean of 2040.

“In the foresight workshop we were able to see different forms, opportunities, challenges and also skills that the Maritime and Coastal Tourism of 2040 can offer. Topics such as climate change, ecological disasters, climate refugees, the green transition, new governance models, but also new technologies emerged and inspired the participants to plan the future of Marine and Coastal Tourism.” said Dr. Christofilopoulos.
