The Storyteller’s Guide: Unleashing the Power of Stories for Regenerative Tourism

In the dynamic world of tourism, new initiatives are emerging, aiming to reshape the way we experience travel and its impact on destinations. The ENFORCE Project, launched in late 2022, is at the forefront of this transformation, embedding regenerative principles into practices within the sector. ENFORCE, coordinated by the Italian Chamber of Commerce in Luxembourg and supported by a consortium of committed partners across Europe, is on a mission to harness the potential of current and future tourism professionals, SMEs, educators, and trainers.

ENFORCE’s core objective is to nurture regenerative tourism experiences through the art of storytelling. The project’s vision extends beyond conventional tourism, aiming to make it a catalyst for positive change. By empowering local communities and safeguarding the environment, ENFORCE seeks to redefine tourism as a transformative force.

As part of the ongoing project work, partners DomSpain and EURAKOM have prepared the Storyteller’s Guide: Your Gateway to Regenerative Tourism

Project partners met in Aveiro on the 14th and 15th of September 2023. It was the perfect opportunity to visit the destination with regenerative glasses on, to understand its many assets but also some of the challenges the destination is facing. Face to face project meetings always provide the partners with the unique opportunity to learn about the work of the hosting partner and get valuable insights about the destination. In this case partners were hosted by the dedicated team of management and tourism professionals of the University of Aveiro who shared a wealth of insights about a city that was new to many of the participants.

The Enforce project is well on track when it comes to the project work plan, which means that after having completed the Best Practice collection of innovative examples about storytelling for regeneration and also the Storyteller’s Guide, partners used the meeting to discuss the development of the Enforce Training Programme.

For the next few months partners will be working on developing the content in line with guidelines provided by the University of Usak, our project partner from Turkey.
The course should be available for piloting in January/February 2024 and will also be available in the partner languages once all translations are finalised.

The ENFORCE team met in the beautiful city of Luxembourg for its kick-off meeting. It took place at the premises of the Italian Chamber of Commerce in Luxembourg (also known as CCIL), which opened its doors to warmly welcome all partners.

The team was aware of the importance of this first meeting and approached it with the same enthusiasm, as it plays an important role in building strong bonds that will contribute to the success of the entire cooperation. With the common goal of building a solid foundation, the participants discussed in depth the first steps required for the project ENFORCE.

During this visit, the project objectives were discussed in depth to ensure that each partner has a comprehensive understanding of the overarching goals. The outcome of the kick-off meeting was extremely satisfying for all partners and generated enthusiasm among the team. It was a success and left everyone inspired and energised.

The journey of ENFORCE has officially begun and with the collective expertise of the committed partners, there is no doubt that it will thrive and achieve remarkable results.
