The city of Anduze (France), gateway to the Cévennes mountains, endowed with a strong cultural identity, shares a vision of tourism with destinations as diverse as Cannes (France), Barcelos (Portugal), the Iles de la Madeleine (Quebec ), Essaouira (Morocco), Barcelona, Recife (Brazil) or Medellín (Colombia) – to name but a few, all members of the Creative Tourism Network® – – headquartered in Barcelona.
Indeed, within the framework of a partnership with this international network, recognized by the World Tourism Organization, UNESCO, and the European Union, Anduze thus works to enhance its intangible heritage and its creative fabric, in order to create synergies at the local level and to exchange good practices, at the international level, aimed at achieving the Sustainable Development Goals of the 2030 Agenda.
Strategies which, have been proven throughout the world, by (re)creating cultural and social ecosystems, which become engines of sustainable development, via a more virtuous tourism model.
According to the director of the Creative Tourism Network®, the creative DNA of Anduze, its know-how, and more generally the magnetism exercised with artists, craftsmen, and creative people from around the world, respond to new societal paradigms, within which the quality of life and cultural enrichment of the residents, become a differential element for the whole territory.
In concrete terms, local actors from the artistic, cultural, associative, and commercial sectors, as well as the population as a whole, need to co-create creative experiences that can appeal to residents and visitors alike, throughout the year.
From ceramic workshops to a silk painting or bookbinding course, from a music master class to a photographic route, from Cevennes cooking lessons to botanical or natural cosmetics sessions, the possibilities are endless. and are available for all profiles.
A project that makes Anduze a paradigm of this tourism with which travelers from all over the world, in search of authenticity and human values, feel identified.
