    • WelDest Health and Well-Being in Tourism Destinations Aims The aim of WelDest is to create a development framework to be used by public bodies, destination management organizations (DMOs) and private companies at tourism destinations willing to strengthen the elements influencing the well-being level of tourists and locals alike. The framework, supported by educational material, enables development of the tourism destination towards a more holistic and sustainable Health and Wellbeing (H&WB) destination. Definition of a “Health & Well-being destination” A Health and Well-being destination is an area chosen by customers (guests, with either preventive or curative motives) as a travel destination to improve their state of health and/or well-being. The destination includes all the necessary infrastructure such as accommodation, restaurants, and other facilities, with a systematically developed offer for health and well-being. The destination is managed and marketed professionally as a unit. Outcomes The Research WelDest will outline the key service supply, resources, staff competencies and elements of H&WB at tourist destinations. The project identifies and strengthens the potential for business opportunities in tourism and leisure, while also contributing to lifelong learning between disciplines and related industries. The consortium will develop a) an electronic handbook, including a self-assessment and development tool, to be used by public and private bodies developing their businesses and destinations. b) a blog providing industry, academia and citizens with new opportunities to improve and share their knowledge on H&WB and tourism related issues. The Benefits of WelDest The WelDest e-Handbook provides you with current knowledge of how to develop, manage and sustain a H&WB- destination in your area. Furthermore, the WelDest blog, the e-handbook and the course design offer teachers and students alike an interesting learning platform and area of study. These outcomes can also be utilized by destinations in their development process. The project “Health and Well-Being in Tourism Destination” (WelDest) combines the expertise of 5 Higher Education Institutes, 10 industry and 15 associate partners from Austria, Czech Republic, Finland, Germany and the UK. These countries represent different stages of development in health and well-being tourism.
