The aim of the “Sustainable Spatial Planning of Tourism Destinations (SPOT)” project is to develop an innovative teaching method of sustainable tourism planning in a master programme and implement the method at five educational organisations involved in the project by the end of the project. This goal is influenced by the wider context of development of the European idea of innovative, sustainable, and inclusive tourism planning. Thus, the following specific objectives should be defined:

- Understanding main trends and challenges of tourism in Europe; this objective will result in a comparison of different contexts of tourism development in Europe (literature studies);

- Facing the challenges of tourism planning through learning by doing on the spot; as the result of this objective solutions for problems and challenges of tourism planning diagnosed in particular locations will be delivered (study visits);

- Disseminating results of joint initiatives for development of tourism planning and its teaching methods; this objective will result in the scientific, application, and educational contributions to tourism planning development (seminars and conferences);

- Exchange of European best practices in the field of tourism planning; as the result of this objective a scientific publication (European handbook of tourism planning) and educational manual (Manual for the course on sustainable spatial planning of tourism destinations) will be prepared; both outputs will be included in the educational package offered to teachers and students participating in the sustainable tourism planning course; the handbook will disseminate teaching content, while the manual will describe innovative teaching method developed during the SPOT project.
