Welcome to 'Green Tourism' Learning Circle



Students from various countries will learn about the role of green tourism in helping to promote awareness about conserving nature for the benefit of mankind in a world faced with climate change. They will collaborate and share perspectives about places and tourism education through using computer software and a shared wikispace. In doing so, students will also learn about nature, heritage and the cultures in these different countries.

  • discuss and agree on a common stand for the definition of 'green tourism'.
  • discuss issues related to climate change in terms of 'green tourism'.
  • create their own parallel projects in line with the project ideas set out here.
  • share ideas, information and photos to promote green tourism in their own country.
  • connect, collaborate and interact cross-culturally in a global village setting.
