Free online course on Sustainable Tourism for SIDS
This interdisciplinary course is a stand-alone course for policy-makers and master students from related disciplines (e.g. policy or development economics). It can be taken parallel to work or study over a period of five weeks (fall 2018). Prior to the active phase, learners can already register, make themselves familiar with the learning environment and browse through some content.
This 7-week long moderated course comprises:
● Introduction to Sustainable Tourism
● Tourism Impacts and Challenges
● Sustainable Destination Management
● Sustainable Tourism Standards
● Stakeholders, Key Actors and Partnership Establishment
● Funding Opportunities and Project Development Exercise
● Impact Monitoring and Peer Review
Work load: Equivalent to an estimated 3-4 hours per course week, depending on how deep you indulge in the material, discussion and interaction with other learners. By passing the final assignment, a certificate of completion will be awarded.
Requirements: To get the most out of this course, it is helpful if you have a B.A./BSc. level degree in a related field of study, e.g. political sciences, development policy or similar. As the course is held in English, you will need fluent English skills.
