About the course

Are you aware of the sheer size and rapid development of tourism? And do you like to engage in meaningful debates about these developments as they appear today and/or tomorrow? If so, this course is for you!

Learn more about different social science perspectives to tourism. Implement these perspectives to a tourism case , and share your insights in a professional team environment including practitioners, visionaries, and/or tourism entrepreneurs joining this course.

Learn and work on promising and new tourism developments, including Digital Nomadism, Urban Overtourism, Accessible Tourism, or Ecotourism.

In this course, you'll explore these and other inspiring developments currently observed in the tourism industry. You'll make use of interdisciplinary insights to rethink the status quo of tourism. Alternatives can only become real if we allow for an open space for continuous discussion and the generation of new tourism narratives.

Not only do we provide space to connect ideas into new narratives for change, we will also challenge you to remain engaged after completion of the course. As a verified learner, there will be lots of opportunity to exchange ideas with tourism scholars from the Wageningen University who are happy to discuss the future of tourism with you.

The effects of Covid-19 corona virus on the tourism industry

There is no doubt that the tourism industry is being affected by the Covid-19 corona virus outbreak. How will we recover, and will we fully recover? How does corona effects the tourists and their behaviour? And how can we pick up after this? How do we take it from here? Since it’s so relevant, we will address these questions in our Tourism MOOCs and make room for this on our discussion platform and case studies.
