This free presentation addresses the role future tourism professionals will play to address the challenges and makeup of the tourism industry going forward. That is to rethink the future of tourism post Covid-19, thereby promoting sustainability and enforcing responsible tourism practices. Guest lecturer Nicolas Pitet will provide attendees with a scope of the tourism sector in terms of job opportunities as well as provide insight on how the tourism sector can enable young tourism managers and leaders to thrive in a job they love while driving positive impact with a career open to the world, people, culture, nature and universal values. Finally, this presentation will offer an interpretation of the evolution of tourism models and the accelerated changes over the last two decades, impacted by three major historical phenomena: climate change, digitalisation and the COVID-19 pandemic.
