Hence, another objective is to sensitize the local population, professionals and the general public about the need to understand, evaluate, protect, and sustainably boost the natural and cultural heritage of the territories in general and the Mandeo basin in particular. For this reason, the Refuxios undertake to promote projects revitalizing social, cultural and tourism that promote sustainable economic development and planning, and also to establish contact with similar associations in Galicia, Spain and elsewhere to share experiences and create products sets that promote sustainable tourism and nature.
Once established association Refuxios do Rio Mandeo, this will launch actions like call for technical seminars targeted at professionals in the seal of quality, and corporate procurement.
