Josai international University: Life Beyond Tourism intensive course

Category: Life Beyond Tourism Activities

6 September 2016
Most recently, from the 26th to the 30th of August 2016, an intensive Life Beyond Tourism course took place at the Josai International University in Tokyo, Japan. The course is yearly given at the JIU since 2015 and it’s called “Methodologies of cultural observation: travel and dialogue”.
Under the guidance of Corinna Del Bianco, the students were given the understanding of the Life Beyond Tourism philosophy and Model, presented at the recent publication “WORLD HERITAGE SITES FOR DIALOGUE WITH LIFE BEYOND TOURSIM”, where the best practice is described and donated to the international community.

During the course, students  had a chance not only to widen their knowledge on the history of travelling, the difference between travel and tourism, and the dangers of the latter one, but they were also evaluated on the exercise R I C E  P O P !

R I C E  P O P ! was the 2016 exercise made for the JIU students to describe, represent and communicate rice culture in Japan. Part of the exercise was to create a pop up card to invite travellers to discover Japanese culture and territory through the knowing of rice culture.
