New Ecotourism Course at Harvard Extension Launches with World Class Speakers

A new on-line course on Ecotourism and Sustainable Development is being launched by Harvard Extension for the September-December semester. The course offers case studies on achieving higher sustainability performance from ecotourism businesses and policy leaders in Asia, Africa, and Latin America. Special guest speakers will provide personal business and sustainability experience and provide guidance on creating successful ecotourism projects. Hans Pfister of the Cayuga Collection and Glenn Jampol of Finca Rosa Blanca will share decades of experience on running successful ecological resorts in Costa Rica. Dr. Sue Snyman will discuss the fully measured quadruple bottom line system used by her firm, Wilderness Safaris, and Jose Dominic CEO of CGH Earth will reflect on the management of a chain of ecological resorts in Southern India. Megan Epler Wood, Director of the International Sustainable Tourism Initiative at Harvard University is the lead instructor. Registration is open through the end of August to students worldwide.
