Also ERCC makes efforts to cope with seasonal tourism problems, which are very actual in Lithuania and requires special attention in order to reduce outcomes of seasonal flows of tourists. Together with Nordic and Baltic partners we are implemented Nordplus Adult project “Seasonal Tourism Challenges in Nordic and Baltic countries” and established Sustainable and Innovative Tourism Network of Nordic and Baltic Countries. ERCC is coordinator of this network.

By participating in European projects ERCC is especially interested in improving its capability to organise VET internships (mobilities) as well as to know, experience and learn new adult learning methods (for example, theather method, peer learning or World Cafe method). 

Thanks to quite wide network of organisations, which ERCC is cooperating with, we can also help for foreign institutions to find Lithuanian partners in the sphere of tourism, culture, inclusive education, secondary, VET and higher education, ;
