Course Overview: Before Covid19 hit, the tourism industry made up 10.3% of the world’s GDP. In 2020, because of the global pandemic and according to a recently released report by the United Nations, the worlds’ tourism industry has dropped to at least 4.2% in 2020. The way people traveled before 2020, in many ways, negatively impacted the environment, local economies, and local cultures. It’s time to change that. This course focuses on understanding the three pillars of sustainability and how they apply to the tourism industry. The course also identifies possible and achievable solutions to the tourism industry that can provide more sustainable travel opportunities positively as it comes back to life in 2021.
