Green Growth & Travelism (GG&T) Summer School

24-28 August 2015

In the summer of 2015, the second edition of the Summer School on Green Growth and Travelism will take place. The ‘Green Growth and Travelism (GG&T)’ Summer School has a specific focus on sustainable mobility and biodiversity.

Today’s world is changing rapidly and we are facing economic, social and environmental challenges compounded by intensifying climate change. In order to create a bright future, the idea of Green Growth has been developed as a strategic response. Its application for tourism and mobility is recognized as a key element of sustainable global socio-economic development. The case of Travelism, short for Travel & Tourism, in the context of a Green Growth paradigm transformation will be extensively discussed.

  • Is for people involved in the Travel & Tourism field (and related sectors)
