Coastal Development and Sustainable Maritime Tourism
Coastal regions are areas of major importance for environment and society. Nature and biodiversity must be protected, as well as the rich historical heritage, but in the same time economy and tourism should develop. This makes the coastal regions a territory of complex interactions and raises a hard challenge.
Would you like to be an active actor in addressing this challenge?
The EU-CONEXUS Minor in “Coastal Development and Sustainable Maritime Tourism” provides you competences and professional skills in five key sectors:
- Biodiversity and Coastal Zone Management
- Environmental Education
- Human Geography
- Sustainable Tourism
- Coastal Engineering.
With a solid theoretical base and through practical activities, you will acquire skills and knowledge that will boost your employability and open professional opportunities in coastal regions in domains like: port and harbour administration, real estate development, governmental agencies, regional and local administration, private and public organizations in the field of environment, tourism and culture, NGOs. You will also acquire an international experience, develop your cultural awareness and intercultural competencies.
Shape your future and become a factor of change in Coastal development!
