The NAU School of Hotel and Restaurant Management and the JAMK School of Business, Tourism, and Hospitality in Jyväskylä, Finland received an Erasmus + Global Mobility grant from the European Union to support collaborative faculty and student research on climate change, tourism, and curriculum development on socially responsible tourism over a three-year time period. Climate change and over-tourism pose new challenges for the nature tourism industry. “This Erasmus grant represents an incredible opportunity for NAU to deepen our understanding of Finnish higher education and tourism in new and exciting ways.” said Daniel Palm, Associate Vice President for Global Initiatives. Geographical and curricular similarities at NAU and JAMK provide an ideal platform for examining the most crucial challenges in nature destinations, such as national parks. In each year of the grant, students and faculty members will also participate in a one-week exchange program between the two universities to facilitate joint research activities and publications on climate change and tourism, developing an online course on socially responsible tourism.
