Event Details

Tourism is a growing sector worldwide. Increasingly, people are looking for outdoor experiences in a natural environment. Well-planned and effectively managed tourism can provide economic benefits and support local communities and regions, while taking into consideration its environmental impacts. The carrying capacity of the respective area should always be considered and visitor impact mitigation techniques should be applied.

Effective tourism management takes into account its current and future economic, social and environmental impacts, moreover, it addresses the needs of visitors as well as local communities.

Please register RSVP for this course.
