Tourism and sustainability seminar kicks off in Cuba
From today until Wednesday, scholars from various nations will meet in this capital for the Fourth International Seminar on Tourism, Development and Sustainability, with the aim of promoting good practice in a key sector for emerging economies.
One of the main lines to achieve sustainable development is the formation of professionals linked to tourism, central theme of the lecture to be delivered by Ramon Martin, professor at UH, to open the scientific sessions of the meeting.
On the opening day, participants will also know about the Master Plan for the Historic Center of Havana, through which this city, selected as one of the seven wonder cities of the world, has regained much of its heritage values.
The seminar is the result of work done since 2012 by the International Network of Researchers in Tourism, Development and Sustainability, composed of academics from universities in Costa Rica, Guadalajara (Mexico), the Autonomous University of Nayarit (Mexico), the one in Lodz, Poland, and the house of higher learning in the Cuban capital.
The event also coincides with the opening tomorrow of the 10th International Meeting of Nature Tourism, Turnat 2015, which will run until September 27, which tries to place Cuba as an attractive destination for this kind of activity, with the presentation of new products related to trekking, diving and fishing.
