"Sowing the Seeds of Change" An Environmental and Sustainable Tourism Teaching Pack for the Hospitality Industry is a newly revised version of the teaching pack edition published in 2001. The teaching pack has been complemented by a series of tools that UNEP has developed in partnership during the past years to provide technical assistance to the industry. This is a joint initiative for the United Nations Environment Programme, Division of Technology, Industry and Economics (UNEP-DTIE), the International Hotel &Restaurant Association (IH&RA) and the International Association of Hotel Schools (EUHOFA).
Both comprehensive and user-friendly, this newly revised CD-ROM introduces environmental and sustainable tourism issues into the hospitality curricula. It is complemented by a range of tools and supporting material, exercises and case studies for practical demonstration purposes, and identifies industry best practices. It is intended to support hospitality education centers develop and expand their environmental and sustainable tourism curricula. It is also intended to help future and present hospitality professionals in understanding the challenges posed by the hospitality industry and to provide them with the knowledge and practical tools to develop in-house training programmes to support environmental initiatives in their hotels.
This CD-ROM contains both the English and French versions.
