International Institute Life Beyond Tourism®
The Life Beyond Tourism® Movement has set up a training program dedicated to the rapprochement of cultures in cooperation with the International Institute Life Beyond Tourism® .
The courses are intended to inform participants on the opportunities and risks involved with tourism, while providing for an alternative approach to the latter: something Life Beyond Tourism® has been researching and developing over the past twenty-five years through the Fondazione Romualdo Del Bianco®.
Who we are
Our Istituto Internazionale Life Beyond Tourism® was born to spread the results of an over twenty-five-year research carried out by the Fondazione Romualdo Del Bianco® in the field of travel and sustainable tourism, for dialogue among cultures. The Fondazione Romualdo Del Bianco®, an internationally recognized non-profit Florentine institution, is a network of more than 500 institutions, and its founding principles are based on intercultural dialogue in accordance with the UNESCO Conventions of 1972, 2003 and 2005.
What we do
We apply our principles and experience related to travel for dialogue and sustainable tourism through training activity structured in educational courses, organized on several levels of competence and interests. Our Institute applies the Life Beyond Tourism® philosophy conceived by the Fondazione Romualdo Del Bianco® thanks to the use of specialized tools such as the Model Life Beyond Tourism® with its Manual and Certification for the Quality Management System for intercultural dialogue.
The courses are for:
- PhD students
- Professionals (each member of the Learning Communities)
- Tour operators
- Tourist accommodations (hotels, B&Bs, apartments, etc.)
Intensive Course Training for Trainers
The intensive Life Beyond Tourism® Training for Trainers course provides a 4-day high-level professional preparation for education, tourism and heritage professionals willing to upgrade their specialisation with the Life Beyond Tourism® philosophy and movement. During the training, participants will have the opportunity to acquire a solid theoretical and practical basis, as well as the educational methodology developed by Life Beyond Tourism®, so as to ensure the continuity of the didactic approach used by Life Beyond Tourism® Trainers on a worldwide level in their home institutions.
At the conclusion, participants will be required to draft a personal training action plan reflecting their vision on conducting Life Beyond Tourism® training activities in accordance with the common framework of the Life Beyond Tourism® philosophy implementation in the world.
The International Institute Life Beyond Tourism® will issue a certificate of participation to all participants.
