La Organización Mundial del Turismo (OMT) invita cordialmente a sus Estados Miembros a participar en la edición 2017 del programa UNWTO Practicum. Este programa de capacitación incluirá un taller sobre Comunicaciones de Crisis en Turismo y se celebrará en español y francés, en la sede de la OMT en España (Madrid) y en el Principado de Andorra del 9 al 16 de Julio de 2017.


El Practicum de la OMT tiene el triple objetivo de:

  • (a) ofrecer capacitación a los funcionarios de las Administraciones Nacionales de Turismo de los Estados Miembros de la OMT en sus esferas de responsabilidad básicas;

  • (b) familiarizarles con el programa de trabajo de la OMT y de la Fundación OMT. Themis y las actividades y servicios que en él se ofrecen; y

  • (c) darles la oportunidad de establecer contactos entre los participantes y con los funcionarios responsables de la OMT y la Fundación OMT.Themis.


De este modo, los funcionarios  pueden aprovechar mejor el valor añadido que la OMT ofrece a sus Miembros, y tener contacto personal con responsables de los diversos programas de la Organización y programas regionales.

Todo funcionario que quiera participar al UNWTO Practicum deberá:

 

  • ocupar un puesto de nivel directivo en la administración nacional, regional o local de turismo, con participación directa en el área de Comunicación;

  • tener un excelente dominio del Español y/o Francés -según corresponda-, ya que el Taller se llevará a cabo en estos idiomas; y

  • ser capaz de contribuir activamente a los procedimientos del Practicum de la OMT.

Para inscribirse al UNWTO Practicum,  los candidatos deberán rellenar el formulario de pre-inscripción en https://survey.zohopublic.com/zs/SMCux0 .

 

La fecha límite para la presentación de candidaturas es el 30 de Mayo de 2017.

Dado el carácter interactivo del UNWTO Practicum, la participación está limitada a un total de 10 personas por idioma, por lo cual se hará una selección final de los participantes en función de sus méritos y los seleccionados serán informados por correo electrónico. Así mismo, se debe tener en cuenta que el hecho de inscribirse, no significa que el candidato haya sido aceptado automáticamente como participante.

Por otro lado, y como se indica en el documento adjunto sobre Información General, el transporte aéreo de ida a Madrid (España) y de vuelta desde Barcelona (España) correrá a cargo del país que envíe a cada participante, mientras que la OMT sufragará el alojamiento en Madrid y Andorra, y el transporte interior Madrid - Andorra - Barcelona.

 

Si deseara recibir más información, agradeceríamos que se pusiera en contacto con nosotros a través de practicum@unwtothemis.org

Although there are multiple and varied definitions of cultural tourism, we will initially take into account its definition established from a broad perspective by the UNWTO in 1995 as “all movements of people to meet the human need for diversity, aimed at raising the cultural level of the individual, providing new knowledge, experiences and encounters.” The same source gives us a narrower definition that refers to the “movements of persons for essentially cultural motivations such as study tours, performing arts and other cultural tours, travel to festivals and other cultural events, visit to sites and monuments".

A multi-destination tourism trip is defined as a single trip that includes the visit to more than one destination. Therefore, a multi-destination tourism concept implies a strategy shared by two or more countries that offer and promote a joint product or route.

Increasingly, multi-destination can be an efficient and profitable tool to attract visitors that might otherwise not consider visiting the destination. This is particularly true in the case of tourists from long-haul source markets, who want to make the best of a long-haul trip by combining various countries in the same area that complement each other and enrich the travel experience. Read more...
