valitsVALidating Informal Transversal Skills of young workers in seasonal tourism
Project number: 2016-1-ES01-KA202-025068
Implementation period: 01.12.2016 – 30.11.2018

Project description: The issue of seasonality in tourism has long been a source of concern expressed in EU publications and it is feared that the intense concentration of touristic activities in a relatively short period of time “may have dramatic negative impact on local economies for the whole year” (Ecorys, 2013).
