Increasing tourism flows in low/medium seasons for youth in Europe
School trips are one of the things students look forward to during their school life. The experiences and memories from them are extremely durable. A school trip, with its natural dynamic environment, provides a learning opportunity that allows students to use their natural inclinations and curiosity to know more about things. It helps engage even those with short attention spans and puts the learning subject into context. The aim of this project is to develop students with skills to be travel smart. With educational trips/tours, like this sweets production trip, the students will develop into responsible tourists and benefit from a learning experience whilst travelling.
