I had the possibility to strengthen and improve my knowledge on Blue Growth and sustainable tourism and to acquire new knowledge, tools and competences useful for my future career. I developed a network of colleagues to collaborate with in future. Moreover, as a Blue Growth Ambassadors, I can extrapolate the interview methodology that I developed for Balearic Islands and Tuscan Archipelago stakeholders to other touristic Mediterranean areas to support and boost an international common cooperation and transition towards sustainable tourism”.
