Tourism for Environmental and Social Sustainability



Tourism and hospitality can enhance and detract from sustainability and development goals. In this course, students will be introduced to development-based tourism market segments (e.g., regenerative tourism, voluntourism, cultural tourism) and learn how tourism can be a tool for social, environmental, and economic sustainability. Students will critically evaluate examples of tourism and hospitality to determine if regenerative indicators are sufficient and achieved. Emphasis will be placed on greenwashing, eco-certifications, sustainable development goals, and accessible tourism to help students evaluate and recognize the role each can play in tourism and hospitality products, experiences, and marketing efforts.
