The DIBEST project is a collaboration that helps small businesses in the Blue Economy (like fisheries or marine-related activities) and Social Tourism across four countries. They do this by bringing together different kinds of partners: businesses, schools, and tourism organizations.

This project is all about giving these small businesses the tools they need to use digital technology and make tourism more sustainable and eco-friendly. They pick certain businesses to be part of the project and then offer them training and knowledge based on what each business needs. This includes things like workshops, coaching, community events, and trips to help them get familiar with the ideas.

The project also creates a collection of knowledge that will be shared on different platforms. This way, not only the businesses in the project but all tourism businesses in Europe, and even schools, can benefit from it. The goal is to make sure everyone has access to information that can help them do better in the Blue Economy and Social Tourism.
