Event Details

Online workshop to discuss with tourism & hospitality educators the relevance of green skills for the tourism workforce. 

In view of COVID-19 and its ongoing impacts, enhancing sustainability has become more relevant and urgent than ever before for the tourism industry. 

As tourism and hospitality is a labor-intensive industry, it is indisputable that human resources are essential to convert into action any sustainability strategy or policy. A workforce that is equipped with knowledge and skills for more sustainable operations is a great asset for any tourism provider to smoothly adapt to customers’ demand for more responsible travel experiences

By training the responsible workers of tomorrow and implementing green practices in their own operations, educational institutions can accelerate the sector’s transition to a more environmentally responsible business model.

  • Green skills for the citizens of tomorrow
