What does the DIANA project talk about?

D.I.A.N.A. – Developing Inclusive and Accessible Natural Areas –  is an Erasmus+ project (KA210 VET – Small-scale partnerships in vocational education and training project) implemented by three European organisations: DAFNE soc. Coop. (ITALY), ABAT BALKANIA ( Macedonia) and KOAN Consulting (Spain). The aim is to support the development of accessible and inclusive skills of those tourism operators who operate in protected natural areas.

The project idea originates from the recognition that there is a significant opportunity for the European tourism sector to enhance its offerings by making nature areas accessible to everyone, but a shortage of trained staff poses a hurdle.

DAFNE and ABAT BALKANIA, operating in protected natural areas in Italy and Macedonia, respectively, have identified the urgent need to enhance tourist experiences to be universally usable. This involves coordinating efforts with nature guides who require training in accessible and inclusive tourism practices.  By collaborating with KOAN Consulting, an expert company in developing ecotourism and nature-based tourism products worldwide, the goal is to bridge this gap. 

Why is your role relevant at this project’s stage?

This project emphasises the importance of co-developing content and implementing training activities in collaboration with several and different local stakeholders. At this first stage, it is essential to create a comprehensive compendium of accessible and inclusive practices in natural areas worldwide. This process involves various steps, including criteria selection, research, surveys, round table discussions, data analysis, and compendium finalisation. 

This is the reason why we need your support!

By filling in this short survey and sharing your experience and opinion, our partnership will be able to collect relevant information to evaluate the accessible level of specific target nature areas.

You will contribute to give us feedback for understanding the strengths and weaknesses in hospitality and inclusivity of your local natural places, helping to guide the project’s direction and results. From this collection, we will develop a document in which we will offer valuable insights and guidance to stakeholders involved in nature-based tourism in order to improve accessible solutions.
