MineTOUR: Becoming active citizens through Minecraft-enhanced Virtual Tourism

MineTOUR is here to promote active citizenship and engagement of youth with civil society by using digital tools to encourage local tourism in rural areas. Expected results entail increased digital literacy, awareness of local cultural heritage and enhanced soft skills, while ensuring community involvement, sustainable local tourism and increased employability for youth.

• Equip them with digital tools for effective promotion and engagement with civil societies.
• Provide necessary resources and networks to showcase hometowns and foster local tourism.
• Promote cross-cultural exchange and collaboration among rural youth in Europe.
• Raise awareness of sustainable and socially responsible tourism practices.
