The event entitled “Sustainable tourism as a driver to achieving global climate neutrality” is under the topic “Sustainable Transport” . It involves three different entities as organizers (Mirabilia network of chambers of commerce (lead), Municipality of Poggibonsi and ECOTRANS (co-organizers), which are sharing the same willingness to collaborate and establishing synergies.

The global level "top down" approach of the panel (connected from Glasgow), will be followed by a "bottom up" local level approach connected from local municalities in Tuscany and the last panel connected from Caserta will bring the European and national dimension together with concrete actions and proposals, looking beyond COP26.
