MEET Network is transforming ecotourism into a viable alternative for Mediterranean protected areas and their visitors. Instead of the typical Sun, Sand, and Sea tourism, MEET parks are focused on our 4C Model: Conservation, Compassion, Connection, and Community.
MEET Network was created by protected areas for protected areas. We enable members to advance their ecotourism efforts through local public-private collaboration, while facilitating a regional network of like-minded parks that market their products under a common brand.
MEET offers members a series of tools tested and refined through previous EU-funded initiatives, and supports stakeholders to share knowledge, build capacity, and advocate for common needs and resources.
The MEET model includes training and support for parks in developing and monitoring the quality and sustainability of conservation-focused protected area ecotourism products, while preparing for commercialization to the international market through the MEET Guide.
