The Sustainable Tourism Training Program (STTP) provides the necessary knowledge and resources to help improve sustainability practices in businesses and tourist destinations.


The course is designed based on the Sustainable Tourism Criteria of the GSTC (Global Sustainable Tourism Council), criteria that constitute a frame of reference to define standards of tourism sustainability worldwide.


The program in all its versions is designed to address technical concepts of sustainable tourism (GSTC Criteria) and real case studies where the practical application of the GSTC Criteria can be seen in companies and tourist destinations.


In practical terms there are 3 modalities to carry out the training programs, below we share details of each of them.

Face-to-face courses that combine exhibition classes in the classroom with practical field trips.

The face-to-face course lasts 3 days and is developed by combining classroom theoretical classes with practical workshops, question-answer dynamics (Q&A) and field activities.


The course can be realized in every Latin American country and the Caribbean in Spanish language.

The virtual course (online) has a duration of 4 weeks in which videoconferences are held to review theoretical contents, self-learning activities in the form of commissions and real case studies.


The online course modality allows to reduce execution costs and expand the number of participants from different Latin American countries.
