Students from Crete discover the world of Tourism
The Tipping Point (TTP) organization, with the support and in partnership with the G. & A. Mamidakis Foundation, implemented the action “Connecting Schools of Crete to the World of Tourism”.
Groups of pupils from seven schools in Lasithi, Rethymnon and Chania had the opportunity to discuss via live video with experienced professionals about the basic skills that executives must have and how to connect and exploit the Cretan tradition with tourism, how a hotel unit works, and the meaning of fishing tourism.
Students and educators who participated mentioned that the seminar was extremely important and useful as tourism is a key pillar of the island’s economy, and many of the young people are thinking of following this professional path.
