“A Costa do solpor europea: unha irmandade atlántica“, is the name of a conference of the Consello da Cultura Galega (CCG), coordinated by Jorge Mira, which focuses on the possibilities for tourism development of some very unique areas. These are the ones linking Cabo de São Vicente and Cabo da Roca (Portugal), Costa da Morte (Galicia) and Aglapsvik and Måsøy (Norway). These places are the last point where the sun sets in Europe if we take into account that the solar illumination of the planet changes during the year. This kind of brotherhood is the unifying thread of a conference that brings together specialists from different disciplines to analyse the tourism potential of these areas.
Professionals from the fields of science and tourism will analyse and debate issues such as the creation of tourism products, brands and initiatives in the field of scientific tourism.
The activity will not be attended in person and does not require prior registration. On 24 March, the Concello da Cultura Galega will publish the recordings of the presentations and the debate on its website.
