The Mirabilia network, which represents 13 million inhabitants and one fifth of Italian tourism for an estimated added value of 296 million euros (pre-Covid data), arrives at the signing after
being selected by the European Commission DG Climate to carry out one of the side events of the European Union at COP26 in Glasgow, which was held on November 12 at the Hotel Plaza in Caserta
(which in those days hosted the IX Cultural Tourism Exchange and the IV Food & Drink Exchange organized by Mirabilia).
The network, on that occasion, signed the document during an event entitled “Sustainable tourism as a driver to achieve climate neutrality“, in a day in which the chamber system has been the
protagonist from the very beginning. In the opening panel coordinated by Gianni Molinari, editor-in-chief of Il Mattino di Napoli, there were speeches by Tommaso De Simone, President
of the Caserta Chamber of Commerce, Carlo Marino, Mayor of Caserta, Angelo Tortorelli, President of Rete Mirabilia, Giorgio Mencaroni, Tourism Delegate of Unioncamere Italia,
Joze Tomas, President of the Forum of Adriatic and Ionian Chambers of Commerce. Other speakers included Valentina Superti, Director of DG GROW, European Commission, and Pina
, Member of the European Parliament.
After the second session of “Synergies between tourism projects funded by the COSME 2014-2020 programme” three panels were held related to the Glasgow Declaration, by which the
territory of Treviso and Belluno together with the other communities of the Mirabilia network, will commit to work on the theme of sustainable tourism with a collaborative spirit, sharing good
practices and solutions and disseminating information, supporting the global commitment to halve emissions by 2030 and reach the zero point as soon as possible, before 2050. In a year’s time, the
network also commits to publicly report on progress against the targets that build on these actions: measure, decarbonise, regenerate, collaborate, finance.
It will therefore be the starting point for a multi-year pathway to implement tourism and the circular economy as a driver of sustainable development towards climate neutrality, with the aim
of building European cross-sectoral clusters among tourism stakeholders, using examples of sustainable mobility, biodiversity and protected areas.
