Mayor Plant launched the seaside town as an “eco resort” on Tuesday 16, August with an event held at the new Coastal Café. The afternoon saw His Worship unveil a new selfie sign for the village on Beach Road, encouraging residents and visitors to take a ‘selfie’ and promote the resort across social media.
Cllr Plant, Mayor of Great Yarmouth, said: “Working together we can make a sustainable and successful future for homegrown tourism, for our residents and our visitors, and for our children and their children. That may start with snapping them in a selfie here, but it can lead to so much more.”
The FACET (Facilitate the Adoption of Circular Entrepreneurship in the Tourism and leisure sector), project is a €3.8 million EU Interreg 2 Seas project, which aims to encourage adoption of Circular Economy solutions in the tourism industry through multiple channels including gamification and behavioural change. The FACET project is delivered by Great Yarmouth Borough Council and Norfolk County Council.
