In order to achieve its goals the project will develop a training path and related tools aiming to equip tourist professionals with the right skills to become a Sustainable Tourism Manager.
This will include knowledge and skills to establish a
sustainable management plan
for the facilities under management, and to undertake the actions needed to achieve sustainability objectives from the environmental, economic and social point of view.
The project foresees the
use of accessible online tools to allow people to understand which actions are the most suitable for their facilities
. This should also enable a wider rural audience to take part in the project.
Outputs- Smartour tools
The Sustainable Tourism Manager model will develop as a result of the experience of the partners and the analysis of the territory where they are based, to encompass different perspectives, locational requirements and traditions.
The structure of the project is there-fore conceived to respond to European principles towards a
European Area of Skills and Qualifications through the shared experience of the partners and joint recognition of training outputs
Very high turnover of staff occurs in the tourism sector, due to the inability to
professionally progress through a lack of training or qualifications
– this project will address this issue.
