National Seminar on Rethinking Tourism: Strategies for Developing Domestic tourism in India.
Now Tourism and Hospitality industry is genuinely recognized as a core pillar of development and employment opportunities. Moreover, thanks to the unique breadth of the sector, touching on almost every part of our societies, it has the power to drive recovery and get the tourism community back on track. For people, it is a leading employer and provider of opportunities, most notably for women, youth, and rural communities. For our planet, the tourism sector helps safeguard habitat and species – witness how the sudden halt in tourist arrivals has led to an increase in habitat destruction and wildlife poaching in many parts of the world. Tourism has also been leading by example in facing up to its climate responsibilities. The innovation driving the sector forward can help us build a more sustainable future for all. The seminar will also give an appropriate platform to showcase the talent, creativity, and innovation of future tourism and hospitality professionals through various inter-college/ inter-university competitions:- 1. Tourism Quiz Contest 2. Craft it- Itinerary Designing competition 3. Life on earth- Poster Making Contest 4. Dekho Mera Desh/Pradesh- Traditional Modelling Competition 5. Skit Competition (responsible tourism/climate change/nature-based T. etc.) 6. Meri Kashi Mera pride - Photographic Essay Competition 7. Folk Lore- Folk Dance Competition The purpose of such competitions is to encourage and promote professional skills, team building, creativity, and innovativeness in youth by providing them exposure to competition among their peers and inculcating within them the concept of creating, applying, and developing innovative thinking, which will enrich and enhance their learning and knowledge.
