Corporate Social Responsibility in Event and Tourism
This course explores the current thinking and practice of responsible tourism and event management. This is an industry relevant course, which delivers an applied yet holistic view of the tourism and event industry, sustainability and development. The course is organised around three modular sections with lectures, guest speakers from the industry and literature seminars.
The first module introduces the concepts of CSR and sustainable development in a tourism and event context.
The second module explores how the tourist and event industry (for example hotels, tour operators and the transport industry) has started applying the concepts of CSR and sustainability.
The third module addresses the consumer perspective focusing on the tourist and the event visitor and their responsibilities.
