Project Summary

WONDER project’s main overall objective is to increase the attractiveness and competitiveness of destinations from the Adriatic-Ionian Region thanks to a child-friendly approach, aimed at improving the liveability of cities and the touristic offer (governance, environment and services) through the development of new and innovative participatory methods.
In this sense, the expected results produced will be:
- New touristic offer addressed to children and families through innovative participatory methods
- Improved cooperation at local and transnational level among tourism sector, local authorities, civil society organisations and citizens/children
- Well-defined transnational identity and raising awareness developed on child-friendly tourism in the Adriatic-Ionian area.
The above mentioned results will be reached through 2 main outputs: 1. WONDER ACTION PLAN aimed at collecting the actions and strategies to be undertaken by cities to become "Child-friendly destinations"; 2. WONDER-Transnational Network of Child-Friendly Destinations, targeting different groups from general public (including children), education institutions, civil society and NGOs, to public bodies and authorities, but also the private sector, including enterprises in the tourism sector.
The WONDER project will combine a top-down approach (decisions and strategies at local authority level) with a bottom-up approach (children’s, civil society, business sector, media involvement) to develop an innovative approach for child-friendly destinations. Cooperation among partners and the transnational approach will be strategic in order to properly address a complete and integrated policy targeted to children, both as residents and tourists establishing a transnational network of “Child-friendly destinations” featured by a common brand.
