Meet us in Turkey!
Dear Students from our partner universities: Inland Norway University of Applied Sciences, Mersin University, Politecnico di Torino, Polytechnic of Leiria, and University of Lodz. Our colleagues from Mersin University are inviting you to join our SPOT project study visit. This will be the only chance to catch some Summer at the beginning of Winter, explore the south part of Turkey, and learn together about sustainability, spatial planning, and tourism. Book the dates between December 6 and 10, 2021 in your calendars and apply!
What’s going on about?
During the study visit to Turkey you will work with other international students and researchers to find a solution for a particular problem of sustainable spatial planning in a tourism destination. Our colleagues from Mersin University will take us to the ancient coastal city of Kızkalesi.
How to cope with uncertainties for sustainable tourism development in Kızkalesi?
Kızkalesi is a remarkable local tourism attraction in South-Eastern Mediterranean with its diverse and unique natural and cultural assets. Yet, the pressure for development while the settlement is surrounded by natural and cultural conservation areas, huge population increase during tourism season that creates carrying capacity and management problems, having difficulties in accessibility from distant locations, and the lack of an updated spatial plan to direct changes in physical environment create uncertainties in tourism development in Kızkalesi. The main focus of the study visit will be to discuss challenges and opportunities to achieve sustainable tourism development in Kızkalesi.
