On June 23, 2022, the final meeting of the ECHO-Tourism project was held in Coutances, France, aimed at producing training resources for tourism professionals, in order to encourage the development of a new social and environmental responsibility linked to the management of tourism activities.

The meeting was attended by international partners from France, Italy, Croatia and Greece who presented their European experiences, involving both tourism professionals, tourists but also citizenship, in order to promote sustainable tourism and responsible daily practices “eco tips” to be adopted at work, at home, when travelling.

The EU-CARES vernissage: urban conflict in analog photography

I would photograph double-parked cars, fancy parking lots, crosswalks, broken pipes, dirt, debris, falling buildings and murals. These images, which emerged from EU-CARES’ “Storytelling through Photography” workshop, depict urban conflict on the way from home to work. The Kamera Lab analog photography workshop displayed the participants’ creations, attracting and engaging passersby.
