All candidates received two certificates of attendance: one of the “Eco-guide training” and the other of the “Wilderness First-Aid course”.

The objective of the CROSSDEV project is to contribute to the economic and social development in Mediterranean. It is co-funded by the European Union through the ENI CBC MED Programme.

CROSSDEV strengthens and enhances sustainable tourism practices, emphasizing common heritage and resources.
