I’ve recently returned from an ERASMUS teaching exchange visit to Germany. I visited the Fachhochschule Stralsund – University of Applied Sciences, in the beautiful medieval city of Stralsund, in the north-east of the country. While I was there, I taught MA and BA students studying tourism management and destination development.
My teaching in Stralsund focused on issues connected to sustainability – in particular responsible tourism and product development for sustainable tourism. In a similar way to my recent talk on responsible events, I concentrated on my view that the concept of sustainability is a failed one – we’ve been talking about sustainability for 30 years and it is about time that we generated some new ideas and new behaviours. I’ve put up some of my slides from my ERASMUS teaching below.
