Tourism operates in a Volatile, Uncertain, Complex, and Ambiguous (VUCA) world. Rush to complete curriculum and limited time available in school schedules, limits students’ opportunities to keep up with current issues in tourism. In particular, less attention is given to sustainable tourism and emerging issues
The STTA Changemakers program is a youth mentorship program that offers flexible, alternative learning spaces focusing on current issues that are important in shaping a sustainable future for tourism. These spaces ground youth in sustainable tourism foundations and encourage critical thinking for the next generation of tourism professionals in Africa.
