ERASMUS+ Sustainable Tourism Training for Tomorrow project

The ERASMUS+ Sustainable Tourism: Training for Tomorrow” project aims to build the capacity of professionals in the field of sustainable tourism. The project runs for a period of 30 months and will finish this year. Funded through the ERASMUS+ Key Action 2 (Cooperation for innovation and the exchange of good practices and Strategic partnerships in the field of education and training), the project brought together partners working on different fields in the sustainable tourism sector:

  • 2 universities: The Hasselt University (BE), who is also the project leader, and the University of Hull (UK)
  • The network of European Protected Areas: EUROPARC Federation (DE)
  • The network of ecotourism professionals in Spain: Asociacion de Ecoturismo en Espana (ES)
  • 2 park authorities: Ente Parchi Emilia Occidentale (IT) and Montagne de Reims Nature Regional Park (FR)

Federparchi – EUROPARC Italy and the French Federation of Regional Nature Parks are also engaged in the project as associated project partners.

The project has already produced a Training Needs Analysis report, which was developed by the EUROPARC Federation with the support of all partners.The Hasselt University then oversaw the definition of a Sustainable tourism curriculum, a training toolkit, which is accessible as an online training platform. 

>>You can access the free online training platform here<<<

It is available in English, French, Spanish and Italian.

By the end of the project, partners will deliver a report with recommendations for policy and practice.
