This transformative two week green skills course is designed to empower youth with the skills and knowledge needed to represent their local culture, customs and heritage structures to a global audience using the medium of lives-streamed tours. This course reimagines a sustainable future for conventional tourism which has a very large carbon footprint and is limited to only some section of society. Using this training, youth will be able to appreciate their own culture and heritage and learn how to showcase this to a global audience with minimal environmental impact.

In the first week, we lay the foundation for understanding the importance of tourism, its environmental impact, and the vital role that eco-tourism plays in shaping the future of sustainable travel. Through live virtual tours to captivating sites worldwide, we illustrate eco tourism practices that are setting new benchmarks in responsible travel. We emphasize the significance of preserving heritage and introduce you to the art of storytelling, enabling you to share these invaluable experiences effectively.


During the second week, learners dive into eco-tourism project development, enhancing their presentation and digital skills, and engage with communities to advocate for heritage preservation. The training culminates in official project presentations to learners from other countries, providing international perspectives and invaluable insights. Learners will not only refine your presentation skills but also reflect on the entire course, recognizing the pivotal role of preserving heritage, the power of storytelling, and the importance of advocating for eco tourism.By the course's end, learners be well-prepared to becoming ambassadors for sustainable travel and the guardians of cultural legacies.
