LINKING & LEARNING WEB SERIES

ABOUT THE LINKING & LEARNING WEB SERIES

Within the framework of the World Tourism Day 2020, The TUI Care Foundation has launched a weekly Web Series, in which experts and field practitioners will engage in dynamic discussions about the latest trends in areas ranging from single-use plastics and social entrepreneurship, to regenerative agriculture and education. Together, we will showcase how the tourism industry is already positively improving livelihoods in destinations around the world and will explore opportunities that exist to multiply the impact of tourism in development work.

Are you passionate about any of these topics? Do you want to learn more about them or understand how tourism plays a role in it? Do you have knowledge and know-how to share with us because you are already working in the field of sustainable tourism and development? Whatever your reasons are, we will be happy to have you on board during these public, online and hand-on sessions.

The TUI Care Foundation invites you to join a special edition of our Linking & Learning Web Series dedicated to our 100 Helping Hands Corona Relief Activities.

The TUI Care Foundation’s Corona Relief Programme is working with local communities in holiday destinations during the current emergency situation.

Digital transformation in development

Digital technology is a powerful tool for sustainable development in tourism destinations. It helps local businesses access information and new markets, communicate easily with their customers and scale up their operations efficiently. We can already see the benefits of this in areas of development like agriculture, education and finance. But 2020 has brought its own challenges and there's still a long way to go. Now, more than ever, investing in digital technology can support sustainable development and help communities be more resilient. The panelists share how they’ve used ICT and digital technology in their own organisations and explore how this could work in tourism destinations and communities.

Can digital technology support sustainable development in tourism destinations?

The power of tourism education

10% of jobs worldwide are in tourism. But securing a job is not easy for everyone. Education and capacity building programmes can create vital career opportunities in tourism destinations, especially for women and unemployed young people in vulnerable, marginalised communities. Find out how the TUI Care Foundation has developed a sustainable and replicable solution through its TUI Academy Programme to train students and link them with internships at hotels.

Can tourism create sustainable career opportunities for disadvantaged young people?

Tourism and regenerative agriculture

Regenerative agriculture improves food security and nutrition and is recognised as a critical tool in climate action. It restores landscapes, rebuilds biological ecosystems and empowers agricultural livelihoods. Join the conversation with our panel of experts who will talk about why regenerative agriculture contributes to achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals and discuss what tourism can do to support its growth.

Social inclusion of indigenous communities

While indigenous communities make up 5% of the world population, they steward 80% of the planet's biodiversity. They are resourceful and represent the history and heritage of a destination whilst adding tremendous value to the touristic experience. Yet their economic participation is little. With the touristic demand for authentic experiences on the rise, indigenous tourism has an opportunity to grow. This panel seeks to explore existing examples of indigenous tourism, the challenges, lessons learnt and opportunities at hand.

How can we increase the economic participation of indigenous communities through tourism?

Social entrepreneurship and technology

In tourism, more and more entrepreneurs put a social cause at the heart of their business model. Digital tools are an opportunity to generate revenue and achieve social impact at the same time. However, accessibility, affordability, the rural-urban digital divide and localisation of social entrepreneurial tech solutions remain a challenge. This panel highlights examples and discusses the impact and risks of using technology as a social entrepreneur in tourism.

Can digital technology encourage investment in social tourism enterprises and increase their impact?
