The Educational Travel Foundation (ETF) is hosting its first international conference entitled “Tourism and the Third Sector: Realising the Potential” from 18-20 September 2009 in Switzerland.
Tourism and the Third Sector is the theme of ETFs inaugural conference which will be held in the historic lakeside city of Neuchatel, Switzerland in September 2009. Speakers will address key issues relating to Tourism
The aim of this conference is to bring together representatives from a diverse range of organisations including those from the third sector, public authorities, policy makers, industry and community representatives, tourism researchers and others who recognise the potential for positive outcomes of Tourism Sector – Third Sector interaction. The third sector comprises value driven NGOs which principally reinvest their surpluses to further social, environmental or cultural objectives.
The idea behind this conference is to provide an intellectual space to explore the enormous potential of Tourism Sector - Third Sector interaction. The conference streams provide a coherent logic to the proceedings yet are diverse enough to allow for the articulation of a wide range of multidisciplinary perspectives which it is hoped will result in lively debate and provide new insights into the interrelationship between Tourism and the Third Sector.
Dates: 18-20 September 2009
Location: Neuchatel, Switzerland
