The Summer School aims to address the professionalization of sustainable tourism project management and strategies together with key donors, policy makers, and industry representatives. It is the perfect place to share practices on how to plan and manage tourism funding with sustainability, and to improve project management and effectiveness in the tourism sector.

This Summer School is organized under the high patronage of the European Parliament and in partnership with Helsinki University, Ruralia Institute, University Consortium of Seinäjoki, the Regional Council of South Ostrobothnia, Leeds Metropolitan University, George Washington University, JLAG, and our partner NECSTouR.

Tourism is the third largest industry in Europe and the EU is promoting it as a vehicle for jobs and growth creation in sync with the EU2020 strategy. The Summer School intends to disseminate best practices and papers related to the theme “Project Management and Sustainable Tourism” as well as to promote PM4SD™, the first Sustainable Tourism Project Management certified methodology, as best management practice.

Seinäjoki is the centre of the Region of South Ostrobothnia and one of the fastest growing conurbations in Finland.
