Costa Nostrum®

Tourism and Culture

Costa Nostrum® (=our coast) is an innovative tool which can be applied to all coasts across the Mediterranean Sea, aiming to achieve their sustainable development. Its major goal is to develop a management plan, a certification standard, within which it will be possible to attain sustainable management and development for each beach, aiming to protect the environment, boost economic activity in the nearby regions and foster the well-being of the community.

At the same time, the Costa Nostrum® certification standard will operate as an online tourism information portal for tourists visiting the Mediterranean region, informing them on infrastructure, classification and features of each sustainable Costa Nostrum® beach.

The advantages deriving from establishing the Costa Nostrum® sustainable beaches are multiple: respecting and protecting the environment and our civilisation, and ensuring economic and social benefits for the local communities and the Greek economy.
