Geomancy green tourism model for sustainable and responsible tourism development for protecting and promoting natural and cultural resources in the MED area :
GEOMANCY bring new approaches to sustainable development. includes unused dimensions in the existing spatial processes were suppressed to 50% .Geomancy has aimed to show the geomantic characteristics of the Mediterranean, highlighting their ability to save natural resources. Space also calls the need for an integrated environmental problems and solutions.by promoting a sustainable, compact and multi-functional vitalenergy LIVING ORGANISM urban model.
We follow globalised ecology- geomancy principles that prioritize a greater environmental protection.
For MED project is Geomancy a modern environmentally responsible research approach which combines knowledge ofEcology geobiology, urbanism and architecture, geography, natural, culturalheritage, sacred geography, anthropology , sociology, humanism, transpersonal psychology, environmental and spiritual science and geophysicsinterdisciplinarily – and connects them with source of traditional knowledge ofancient ancestral wisdom and new discoveries of science.
Geomancy analasys of Mediterranean was performed in summer 2015. This is research methodology multifaceted treatment of the environment. Responding to a question MED contest – common territorial challenges that will be tackled by the our project GEOMEDTOUR.
NATURAL, PHYSICAL AND GEOGRAPHIC CHARACTERISTICS of med project
The MED programme covers a vast territory stretching from the Portuguese regions of theArea Metropolitana de Lisboa, Algarve and Alentejo on the Atlantic coast, to Cyprus at theeastern edge of the Mediterranean. It includes 13 countries (10 MSs and 3 PSs). The eligible geographic area extends over some 860 000 kmÂ² or around 20% of the European Union area.
The territory has extremely diverse natural, physical and geographic characteristics. It enjoys more than 15 000 kilometres of a maritime coastline and fertile arable plains that were the cradle of Mediterranean agriculture, with its vine growing and olive and citrus fruit plantations. It also has high mountain ranges such as the Alps, the Pyrenees, and the Pindos. Another characteristic of the MED space is that it is composed of participating countriesâ€™ large areas, but equally a high number of small islands, including the small Member States such as Malta and Cyprus, and also island regions like the Balearic Islands, Corsica, or Crete. In spite of the Mediterranean having historically been a place of transit between Europe, Asia and Africa, its geographic diversity provides a partial explanation for the accessibility and communication difficulties experienced travelling within, to, or between its different regions. The juxtaposition of such diverse regions creates both opportunities and challenges for developing the programme area. Its climate, coast, and mountains are true assets (both for living and for tourism) and the programme area is rich in biodiversity and agricultural potential.
Mediterranean countries possess a wide diversity of natural resources including woodlands, arable lands, mountainous areas, rivers, lagoons, deltas, and wetlands. These resources are important assets (especially for agriculture and tourism) but also represent sources of fragility.
Even if there are significant differences between MED countries with regard to the state of the environment and the gravity of the environmental problems encountered, there are still challenges that are common for all the countries, namely the management of coastal areas, water resources, soil, and protected areas. Common challenges for Mediterranean coastal areas are listed in the Bologna Charter that highlights especially the risks related to climate change effects, urban pressure and the necessity to better promote cooperation between regional partners. Within MED countries, the impact of human activity on the environment is relatively high
Second call for Modular projects
