Crea­tion of the Su­stai­na­ble Tou­ri­sm Ma­na­ger pro­ject

Hi­ghly sen­si­ti­ve to the issue of eco-su­stai­na­bi­li­ty, the Con­fin­du­stria Al­ber­ghi (Ita­lian As­so­cia­tion of Ho­tel Com­pa­nies) is par­ti­ci­pa­ting in the Smar­tour “Su­stai­na­ble Tou­ri­sm Ma­na­ger” pro­ject as part of the Era­smus Plus Pro­gram­me.

The ob­jec­ti­ve is to in­crea­se pro­fes­sio­nal skills lin­ked to su­stai­na­bi­li­ty and qua­li­ty in or­der to de­ve­lop new pro­fes­sio­nal pro­fi­les and qua­li­fi­ca­tions spe­ci­fi­cal­ly for the tou­ri­sm in­du­stry.

Ita­ly, Uk, Fin­land & Gree­ce

Ita­ly, Uni­ted King­dom, Fin­land and Gree­ce are the coun­tries ta­king part and, to­ge­ther wi­th Staf­ford­shi­re Uni­ver­si­ty (Pro­ject Lea­der), Eu­ro­crea Mer­chant, Tam­pe­re Uni­ver­si­ty Of Ap­plied Scien­ces, Cry­stal­clear­soft, Tou­ch Td and New­ca­stle-Under-Ly­me Col­le­ge, Con­fin­du­stria Al­ber­ghi will be par­ti­ci­pa­ting in de­ve­lo­p­ment of the plan. The next step ta­ken by the as­so­cia­tion wi­th the­se other or­ga­ni­sa­tions will see ana­ly­sis of needs and re­sear­ch in­to the sta­te of the art on a na­tio­nal le­vel. This will be fol­lo­wed by scien­ce-ba­sed trai­ning mo­du­les, spe­ci­fic to the tou­ri­sm sec­tor and, in par­ti­cu­lar, to ho­tel ho­spi­ta­li­ty; de­ve­lo­p­ment of a plat-

form (Smar­tour Ge­nie) to ac­com­pa­ny users and help them ma­ke in­for­med choi­ces that be­ne­fit com­pa­nies adop­ting eco-su­stai­na­ble, en­vi­ron­men­tal, ter­ri­to­rial­ly friend­ly prin­ci­ples. It will al­so see de­ve­lo­p­ment of a sy­stem to cer­ti­fy the skills ac­qui­red, in com­plian­ce wi­th the Ec­vet sy­stem and as a gua­ran­tee on a Eu­ro­pean le­vel. An ad hoc cour­se will tea­ch ope­ra­tors tech­ni­ques and no­tions that pre­pa­re them for the ma­na­ge­ment of ho­tel ser­vi­ces, bea­ring in mind pro­tec­tion of the en­vi­ron­ment, use of re­sour­ces, eco­no­mic de­ve­lo­p­ment; or un­der­stan­ding and im­ple­men­ting Eu­ro­pean Qua­li­ty Prin­ci­ples that aim to ef­fec­ti­ve­ly im­pro­ve com­pa­ny per­for­man­ce, as well as for en­han­cing cul­tu­ral and en­vi­ron­men­tal he­ri­ta­ge as a dri­ver for su­stai­na­ble de­ve­lo­p­ment and com­pe­ti­ti­ve­ness of won­der­ful de­sti­na­tions wi­th good tou­ri­st po­ten­tial. The cour­ses will be at­ten­ded by pro­fes­sio­nal ope­ra­tors, main­ly ho­te­liers and ac­com­mo­da­tion pro­vi­ders, who will ta­ke part in ex­pe­ri­men­ta­tion of a trai­ning mo­del that fo­cu­ses on de­ve­lo­p­ment of skills in a su­stai­na­ble key.

Com­pa­nies in the ho­tel sec­tor are al­rea­dy par­tial­ly aware of the be­ne­fi­ts de­ri­ving from ener­gy ef­fi­cien­cy and the aim of the­se cour­ses is to ex­pand this tool­box, ad­ding prac­ti­cal tools needs to main­tain the hi­gh po­si­tion of Ita­lian ho­tels com­pa­red to their Eu­ro­pean com­pe­ti­tors. The next mee­ting will ta­ke pla­ce in Tam­pe­re in Fin­land, in May 2016.
