Tourism & Sustainability: The Future We Want

Final Document of the Rio+20 Conference renewed the world’s commitment to sustainable development and ensuring the promotion of an economically, socially and environmentally sustainable future for our planet and for present and future generations.
The 2016 FITE Topic challenged students to develop their own answers to the question of what future do we want for tourism and sustainability and how do we best achieve it. Over 130 students participated to the competition, giving their arguments and examples of good practices in order to harness tourism as a force for sustainable development.
The 15 top ranked students received full funding to attend the 2016 FITE International Student Conference.

    2016 International Student Conference

    The 2016 FITE International Student Conference was held in Bali, Indonesia, in June 2016, and provided students an opportunity to engage with Indonesian political, business, tourism and scientific communities on questions of sustainability and tourism. The conference centered on the theme chosen for the video-essay competition: “Tourism and sustainability: what future do we want?” 

    The aim of this conference was to share Indonesian, French, and international expertise on the growing economics of tourism and to discuss the conditions of sustainable tourism development, and create a forum for exchange on the best management practices for the destinations of Indonesia and France.

    At the conference, experts, diplomats and professors in ecotourism and sustainability led panels. The first panel's topic was "What is Well-Designed and Managed Tourism," the second panel discussed "Reasoned Agriculture, Culture and Tourism Development: Lessons in Bali."  On the second day of the conference two more panels were held on "Sustainable Tourism and the Sea" and "Sustainable tourism and Education."

    On this occasion, the 15 top ranked students participated to the final rounds of the competition, defending their video before a panel of judges. At the end of the selection process, 3 Indonesian students were chosen as the 2016 FITE winners and awarded trips to France to continue their exploration of sustainable tourism.

    The award: French summer school “Tourism Destination Management. Learning from France”

    The 3 winners joined the summer school organized by the French University of Tourism from 25 June to 23 July 2016, in four main cities: Nice, Toulouse, Angers and Paris. As a result, they obtained a diploma in tourism destination management.
