The main focus of All Ashore is to transform existing leisure ports into attractive meeting places for a wide range of port users. It includes better access of the port area for specific target groups like disabled as much as better access of land facilities and potential tourism sites in and around a leisure port for any visitor. Emphasis lies on the gender perspective and the question how to create business opportunities for others than the traditional.
The creation of a leisure port that has an inclusive service function for non-traditional target groups (children, women, immigrants), that is easy accesible and that is able to respond to changing habits and trends in tourism.
New business opportunities favouring gender and etnicity.
A future for traditional boat related SME's that tend to be owned and driven by the older generation and where often the succession to the younger generation is a problem.
Partners Found Already
