E-Parks project is focusing on the improvement of accessibility and mobility of people with special needs in national parks and natural areas by developing and updating existing infrastructure, while at the same time it promotes the cooperation and the creation of a network for stakeholders of the local economies by enabling partnerships at all levels and with all actors.
The project is aiming at promoting the tourism potential of Protected Natural Areas in Apulia Region in Italy and Greece.
