Tourism Awareness Training

Status: Just started
Time needed: 
Two weeks or more
Step: 
3

The tourism committee plans to provide training to the local members of the community to increase their awareness about the project and help them better understand how they can meet the needs of the visitors who come to tour the local area.

Can you find examples of similar community-based training programs that help teach the importance of environmental responsibility as well as ways to promote a safe, friendly and comfortable environment for our visitors to enjoy their stay in Nepal?

Please share your ideas or resources to help us develop this training program.

Hi Tejanath;

I have found a couple of links that seem to provide a complete training plan for developing a Community Based Tourism Initiative.

First is a Community Based Tourism Resource Kit at:
http://www.mountain.org/docs/CBT-Kit-final-2003.pdf

Second is a Training Manual that is designed to be used with the above kit.
http://www.recoftc.org/site/index.php?id=417

I have also found links to a couple of organizations that you may be able to contact for further help as they seem to work in Nepal to develop tourism initiatives:
http://www.netif-nepal.org/index.php

http://www.yourtravelchoice.org/2009/08/hands-on-tourism-education-outdo...

http://www.dreamnepal.com.np/general.php?page=useful (They organize the tours described in the link above. Perhaps there is an opportunity to have tourism students travel to your village to help.)

This is a lot of information to look through so I hope it is valuable.

Cheers;

Cathy.
