In recent years, there has been increasing recognition of the need for sound and planned management of tourism destinations. From traditional marketing and promotion boards the trend is for Destination Management Organizations (DMOs) to become leading organizations with a broader mandate which includes strategic planning, coordination and management of a full range of activities within an adequate governance structure with the integration of different stakeholders operating in the destination under common goals. Destinations where such an organization is not still in place are increasingly creating or plan to create a DMO as the organizational entity to lead the way.

These developments stem from the urge to achieve an optimal management of the destination which ensures that the various authorities, all relevant stakeholders and professionals are coordinated by a leading entity under a coherent strategy and a collective vision in pursuit of a common goal, the competitiveness and sustainability of the destination. This approach should also engage the residents and the local community in the tourism policy and decision-making process and its implementation in a truly Public (P) – Private (P) – Community (C) approach.

Why women empowerment in tourism matters?

The importance of gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls has been underscored in the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goal 5- Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls by 2030. Gender equality implies a society in which women and men enjoy the same opportunities, outcomes, rights and obligations in all spheres of life (UNPFA, 2017). A critical aspect of promoting gender equality is the empowerment of women, with a focus on identifying and redressing power imbalances and giving women full autonomy to manage their own lives. Women’s empowerment is vital to sustainable development and the realization of the human rights for all. Moreover, evidence shows that promoting equality will speed up the progress towards the achievement of the SDGs, (UNICEF, 2011) and must be a central part of any strategy to create more sustainable and inclusive economies and societies (OECD, 2014).  Read more

30 May 2017

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
