Contributing to the European Year of Skills, this year’s Sustainability Leadership workshop will be focused on tourism practices and leadership. Facilitated by industry experts - Global Sustainable Tourism Council (GSTC) leading body of tourism accreditation & certification,  advising destinations and tourism businesses on sustainability strategies.

Selected participants will embark on an unparalleled journey of personal and academic growth, honing their green, innovative, sustainable and digital skills in the tourism industry while gaining invaluable insights from industry experts.
