UniAdrion Summer School on Sustainable Tourism aims at introducing students to the concept of sustainability and sustainable development in the tourism and hospitality sectors. The course meets the increasing demand for the use of creativity and innovation to address development challenges and reach the SDGs goals. Students will develop the ability to critically evaluate the impacts of tourism development on the Adriatic-Ionian Region natural resources and the local community. The natural and cultural environments of communities and destinations will be explored to enable students to critically interpret the changes and development of domestic and international tourism policy and train them on possible solutions to overcome crises.

The school is targeted to 30 young people (students, young graduates and young officers) interested in or operating with the topic of sustainable tourism, with a background on marketing and tourism. Priority will be given to students coming from universities belonging to the UniAdrion association and to students/young officers coming from the countries covered by EUSAIR (Albania, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Croatia, Greece, Italy, Montenegro, North Macedonia, San Marino, Serbia and Slovenia).
The participants will be selected based on their CVs, their current research and their research/professional interests.
Geographical balance will also be taken into account in the selection process.
