Year: 2021

 

Partners: MedCities Association, Barcelona Municipality, Saida Municipality

 

Sectors: Industry, Labor, Heritage & Tourism, Education, and Economy.

 

The project aimed at building the capacities of 30 youth from the city of Saida, who are interested in the living heritage of the old city of Saida. A training was held for the local guides giving them courses on the different tourism personas they might encounter during their trips, as well the communication skills they have got to acquire to create the best experience for the tourists. The training was accompanied by tour visits to the sights to know about the heritage and stories of the city. The project was successfully achieved by building the capacities of the youth and connecting them to their city through those site visits, and creating job opportunities for them especially after setting their names on the local tourism website VisitSaida.
