The International Coalition of Tourism Partners (ICTP) is offering all eTN readers a special rate for the 2nd Green Growth & Travelism Summer School at the University of Hasselt, Belgium, from August 24-28 2015. Places are still open.
ICTP has organized a 20% discount on course fees for the upcoming Green Growth & Travelism Summer School.
The school is focused on the post 2015 Agenda following the 3 transformative Heads of State Summits on Development Financing, Sustainable Development Goals and Climate Change.
ICTP President Professor Geoffrey Lipman says that the event is a timely opportunity for managers in the industry, consultants and postgraduate students to evaluate the essential changes that the Travelism sector (Travel & Tourism) will have to make in the coming years. “We don’t have options, this is a societal change; we either join and shape or get left behind… the time for growth blinkers and sustainability cosmetics is over.”
The 4 day “school” is full of interactive lectures from top class academics and practitioners in the field from Europe, Australia and Asia – the issues covered include green growth, measuring benefits and impacts, climate change, adaptation financing, CSR, beyond certification, big data, etc. There will also be special sessions on the Nepal Disaster Response and the SUN Green Growth transformation system that links solar energy, cloud based communications and community delivery. It features visits to the European Parliament and Belgium’s National Park, with its internationally acclaimed Director.
