2015 Green Growth & Travelism Summer School at Hasselt University Limburg Belgium
Monday August 24th to Friday August 28th
including field trips to Hoge Kempen National Park and the European Parliament.
There are still a few places left in what promises to be the most timely and informative session on Travel, Tourism and the post 2015 Climate / Sustainable Development Agenda.
An intensive, interactive, educational and analytical program, designed to prepare 
Travel & Tourism managers and postgraduate students for the radical changes that will be the new global norm, after the year end Heads of State Summits on Sustainable Development Goals and Climate Change.
World Renowned experts on Biodiversity, Climate Change, Green Growth & Sustainability – Ignace Schops, Felix Dobbs, Geert Wets, Geoffrey Lipman, Harold Goodwin and Roger Carter - along with Professors, Parliamentarians and Practitioners will discuss transformation in the Travel & Tourism sector.
At the same time there will be up to date specialized briefings on UN Strategies, EU Financing Programs, Renewable Energy, Community Frameworks, Big Data, Econometric and Mobile market/sustainability support systems as well as Travel Industry Leadership Aspirations.  A highlight will again be the Maurice Strong Reflections evening in which Felix Dobbs, author and activist will discuss what the UN post 2015 goals are designed to deliver and the potential opportunities. Professor Harold Goodwin, father of the Responsible Tourism movement, will look at the opportunities and challenges for the Travel & Tourism sector and the communities in which it operates.
