Sustainable Tourism in Fragile Environments
The main purpose of the internship is to study the environmental, social and cultural characteristics of the Maldivian Tourism System. A specific focus is dedicated to the “One Island – One Resort” model and to the national policies concerning community-based and sustainable tourism. The course is divided into a series of lessons and field activities (visits to resorts, site inspections and meetings with the local management) coordinated by Italian faculty and researchers. Lessons are held at the Marine Research and High Education Center. All field activities in the sea are carried out in snorkeling and in any case it is not expected throughout the course that students plunge with diving equipment.
