Περιγραφή Περιεχομένου:
Tourism has indeed been a rapidly growing sector, both globally and in Greece. In recent years, new tourism products have been introduced, utilizing more and more natural and man-made resources, implying an increased stress on the environment. Uncontrolled use of natural resources is a potential threat to many destinations, as may operate beyond their carrying capacity. Since the quality of the environment, natural and man-made, is essential to tourism, the course will examine a range of issues related to tourism and the environment, as well as the concept of sustainable tourism.
The course includes topics such as:
  • Concepts and principles of ecology
  • Prevention of pollution

  • Environmental management systems
  • Tourism resources and the environment
