At the beginning of July the third ILEEE “International Learning and Exchange of Experience Event” within the project CHERISH took place in Pescara, Italy.
During the two intensive days, our hosting partners together with their stakeholders presented different best practice examples. The participants could learn about the fishing traditions in the Ecomuseum in Martinsicuro, have a fantastic fishing tourism experience aboard local fishing vessels and visit the trabocchi, the old wooden fishing machines that are typical in Abruzzo region.
Interesting presentations, storytelling experiences and conversations with the local community have also been constant parts during the whole meeting.
This was possible thanks to the close cooperation with the local FLAGS (Costa dei Trabocchi, FLAG Costa Blu and FLAG Costa di Pescara) and the other stakeholders who cooperate in the project.
Moreover, as highlighted by Mr. Valerio Cavallucci during his interview as well as by the hosting partners, these two days caught the essence of the meaning of ILEEE events. On one side, the visiting partners could appreciate and learn from the local practices and, on the other side, the hosting region will benefit from the constructive remarks that the team of external coastal experts provided after visiting the region.
The next ILEEE will take place in Viana du Castelo (Portugal) at the end of October.
