Connecting the Needs of Employers, Professionals and Higher Tourism Education Institutions to Build a More Sustainable Tourism Sector

The 2013 UNWTO.TedQual Worldwide Event will be held at UNWTO headquarters in Madrid, Spain, from 11 to 13 September 2013.

With this objective in mind, UNWTO.TedQual Representatives from around the world will meet in Madrid during three days to work in various initiatives - such as the UNWTO.TedQual project to support to tourism destinations hosting World Heritage Sites - that would help contribute to the accomplishment of the above mentioned goal.

From 4 to 6 September 2013 will be held at the University of Bournemouth, United Kingdom, the first meeting of the UNWTO.TedQual Students’ Advisory Board.

This Advisory Board has been created with the goal to learn from the students – in their role of future tourism professionals – about their thoughts, worries, aspirations and commitments once accessing the labour market, as well as, in turn, sharing the tourism sector’s main concerns regarding a better practice of the profession.

To attain this objective, students from UNWTO.TedQual Institutions from around the world will gather for three days in Bournemouth to share their opinion with UNWTO on two main topics: The Tourism Labour Market and how they, as future professionals, can make clear commitments to contribute to its Sustainable Development.

During the meeting, the Advisory Board will therefore have the opportunity to speak with the employers, to participate in mock job interviews, and work on the ethics Decalogue for future professionals of the tourism sector.

We strongly hope this Students’ Advisory Board will contribute to a better development of the sector, as well as to the development of the student’s own personal and professional talents.
