ECOTOUR - Energy Efficiency Management In Tourism Industry

Project Results

The objective of the project is the exchange of experience, information, concepts, various methods and strategies and their implementation and experimentation.

One of the aspects of the added value for the project is that all results will be translated into English, Romanian, German, Finnish, Dutch, Spanish and Italian so that they are accessible to the target groups and especially the general public:

1 project website in 7 language versions that will contain text and images related to the content of the project, realized events, activities and results.

1 e-learning platform with translations in 7 languages. Self-learning platform content will be easily accessed by any student interested in acquiring skills and key skills in energy management in tourism.

1 set of training materials available online in the e-learning platform. 

6 pilot courses with a total of 180 participants organized in each of the partner countries (30 participants / country).

Specific target group of the project includes: managers and staff from hotels, restaurants, hostels, tourism units, agencies, suppliers and manufacturers in the tourism industry.

We also expect to a greater cooperation and involvement of relevant stakeholders from the tourism sector: education and training providers, tourism policy makers, educational institutions and professionals in tourism and energy efficiency. These actors will be directly involved in our project by participating in the pilot testing of the ECVET model (1 meeting / partner from all participating countries, with a total of 180 participants) with a view to validate the results obtained in the occupational analysis (W3) and drafting ECVET documents (W4).
