Climate Change, Impact Chains, and Regenerative Tourism: CLIMAR’s first training

The National University of Colombia hosts the first training of the CLIMAR project with experts from all over the world

The National University of Colombia hosted the first training of CLIMAR, a project that aims to promote research, innovation, knowledge transfer and continuous professional development in a transversal way in order to contribute to the adaptation of tourism activities to climate change and the mitigation of the impacts of the tourism sector.

In this framework, the members of the project met in Bogotá on the 21st, 22nd and 23rd of November 2023 for the first training of the project, which was targeted towards climate change, impact chains and regenerative tourism.

To discuss these three topics, we invited partner experts from all over the world: Matías M. González Hernández (University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria), Paolo Figini (University of Bologna), Javier Toro (National University of Colombia), Liven Fernando Martínez (Universidad Nacional de Colombia), Gabriela Arrieta Loyo (Universidad Nacional de Colombia), and Jesús Olivero Verbel (University of Cartagena). All in all, a successful training focused on innovation in the tourism sector to better address climate change.

The Climar project, organised by OBREAL and the Universidad de Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, is now preparing a report of results of the key learning points of these sessions and how to implement them.
