Training seminars/workshops (Activity 3b)

This activity foresees the organization of training seminars for each of the selected accommodation units. During these seminars all relevant parties are invited to participate including tourist agencies, hotel managers, owners and staff as well as individual tourists. The aim of these seminars is (i) to present the aims and objectives of the project (ii) to introduce and demonstrate the capabilities of the developed software tool (iii) to train the relevant operators of the software in order to gain sufficient knowledge in operating, maintaining and altering the software (iv) to enhance tourists awareness on issues related to sustainable way of thinking and their role in climate change mitigation. In addition appropriate signboards and posters will be created and set in strategic positions within the various facilities of the hotel accommodations (e.g. hotel rooms, bars, restaurants,) aiming to promote in a quantitative and illustrative way the reduction of energy consumption, waste and wastewater production. Such initiatives in the tourism accommodation can have important repercussions for positive tourist perceptions. The value of initiatives at the level of individual accommodation establishments lies as much in their symbolic power, involving large numbers of tourists in environmentally pro-active behaviour. To further disseminate the project objectives and aims a leaflet will be developed and distributed among the participants.
