Tourism is a lever for local development and natural resources management. This choice is justified by the fact that tourism is transversal to many aspects of development: The economical, social, environmental dimensions, as well as the valorization of a local identity, the preservation of traditional know-how … all are inherent components to tourism.

Objectives :
• Participation in the sustainable development of the locality,
• Social inclusion of rural youth and improvement of their incomes and fight against their socio-economic vulnerability,
• Creation of many income generating activities related to responsible tourism.
• Management of tangible and intangible heritage for sustainable local development.

The training will cover the following themes:
• Tourist accommodation
• Tourist support (guides, muleteers, interpretation of the natural, cultural and architectural heritage…)
• Management of the touristic activity (prices, supply, accounting)
• Communication (introduction to basic French and English)
• Catering (rations, balance, hygiene)
• Knowledge of the tourist clientele (understanding the crosscultural dimension between hosts and visitors)
• Environmental awareness
• Opening of hiking trails
