Community Tourism Diaspora Project
Community Tourism Diaspora
‘Community Tourism Diaspora Project’
This initiative is a three-way partnership between Fáilte Ireland, IPB Insurance and Galway County Council and has been established as a follow on from the success of the Gathering in mobilising local communities to harness diaspora links for the benefit of local tourism.
The objectives of the initiative are to:
• Provide support in the form of small-scale funding incentives for community-based tourism events that have the capacity to carry through the legacy of The Gathering in 2014 and beyond;
• Create a national network of local events with the capacity to deepen diaspora linkages and networks that have been developed or re-activated during The Gathering year;
• To foster the growth of strong county diaspora networks on the basis that diaspora relationships are rooted in ‘people and place’.
Is this an opportunity you cannot miss!!
