This innovative environment empowers and motivates tourism and hospitality students by giving them real-time experience working on creating and presenting innovative sustainable solutions for the challenges that the sector is facing nowadays.
Through an online competition, Students from around the world will compete to give the tourism sector their best sustainable ideas on the pressing subjects of the sector, such as the themes chosen for this year, Tourism for Rural development, through the challenge “Off the Beaten Track”.
This competition bridges the gap between students’ education and training and the realities of our sector and therefore not only gives students more insight on our sector and on the possible job avenues that exist but also enables these young people to then enter the labour market as highly qualified and skilled professionals capable of adapting to any situation that may arise.

- Experience from working on a real situation in the Tourism sector
- Learning about the best practices in the field from top professionals
- Winning solutions will be published in UNWTO e-publication
