    Fondazione Comunitaria di Agrigento e Trapani (FCAT) is interested to be a PARTNER ORGANIZATION in the framework of the Call – Thematic projects on Sustainable Tourism.

    FCAT is a philanthropic body set up in 2019, aiming at the promotion of cultural, environmental and socioeconomic development of the provinces of Agrigento and Trapani (South Western Sicily, Italy). The organization has a consolidated experience in the field of community development, social innovation and sustainable tourism including a consolidated experience in the framework of transnational projects (under the EU programmes Erasmus+,COSME-SmP) as well as local funded projects (funded by Fondazione CON IL SUD, CON I BAMBINI impresa sociale, PNRR, Private Foundations), thus ensuring the capacity to work in a transnational and multi-level partnership (public and private).

    In the field of sustainable tourism, FACT is a partner organization of the following projects:
    – “Land of Skies, Water and Stones” in cooperation with the the Municipality of Santo Stefano Quisquina (Agrigento) funded by the call “Borghi” of the Ministry of Culture for the implementation of the National Recovery and Resilience Plan (PNRR). The project engages local communities and tourism operators to promote experiential tourism based on the promotion of the community’s local identity, arts, culture, craftsmanship, nature, history, spirituality, hospitality and agriculture.
    – “ECO-TOURS – Empowering local communities turning them into laboratories for co-development of circular and sustainable tourism ecosystems” funded by the EU programme SMP-COSME, targeting rural and coastal areas of relevant natural and cultural significance in Italy, Greece, Cyprus, Hungary, Spain and France (start date: 1/11/2022, end date: 30/10/2025). Through transnational cooperation, peer learning and capacity building, the project aims to co-develop generative strategies and a financial support system to SMEs to support their green, digital and social transition.
    – FCAT cooperates actively and supports by a program of “community crowdfunding” the “Museo Diffuso dei 5 Sensi” run by the Cooperativa di Comunità Identità e Bellezza, in Sciacca, Italy. The project aims at fostering sustainable tourism by: engaging community inhabitants from passive spectators to active tourism providers; enhancing of the knowledge local people own and sharing of identities through meaningful storytelling and experiential, transformative and emotional tourism; promoting circular economy principles, values and quality standards into the tourism sector.
