On September 25th and 26th took place, in Livorno the European conference launching the ThreeT project.
The event was organized by the Province of Livorno, lead partner, along with Tuscan Region, partner of the project financed by the cooperation Programme INTERREG EUROPE.
The ThreeT project goes beyond the traditional planning of the cross-border area, to effectively connect partner countries from all over Europe: Finland, Germany, Malta, Poland, Romania, Spain and Hungary.
The main goal of the project, which will be developed over the course of about 4 years, is the promotion of the eight regions’ natural and cultural heritage through accessibility improvement of the sites with touristic and cultural value, both in terms of sustainable mobility and in terms of increasing the information that allows to locate, know and easily reach the places of interest.
The activities will be particularly focused on defining good practices of safe sustainable mobility, transports’ intermodality, protection and promotion of natural and cultural heritage through one or more paths.
These practices will be included in an Action Plan for each partner region. The initial realization of the plan will be carried out during the last two years of the project, by financial support both European or from other sources.
On the first day of the conference, the goals of the project were introduced, as well as the planned activities, the awaited results and effects in the areas of action. Each partner has, then, presented their territorial background, the policy tools and their expectations on the contribution of the project to the social, economic and environmental sustainable development.
The second day was focused on the technical meetings and the steering committee.
The project can count on a total budget of 2 million euros, thanks to the access to the Asse 4 funds of the INTERREG EUROPE Programme.
Such financial endowment will allow to express and bring to funding all those actions defining and promoting a series of different “thematic itineraries”, carrying out a significant increasing of resources, with positive repercussions on the regions’ economy.
