Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Published conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


This chapter brings together the disciplines of transformative education, tourism strategy development and performance, and role of tourism education to enrich and embed sustainability in our future tourism leaders. With a focus on the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UNSDG) 4 (Quality Education) and 13 (Climate Action) the author uses the PPP framework of strategic portfolios, programmes, and project management to present propositions of how to develop a framework to design strategic and transformative tourism futures. The 3Ps, namely, portfolios of work (strategies), programmes of work (Tertiary education), and individual projects (modules), enable us to develop and deliver strategies with a focus on sustainability, developing transformative curriculum, using good practice to enable ‘flow’, and developing governance themes to enable informed tourism strategy development. Bringing in the dimensions of transformative tourism education will ensure that all we leave behind as travellers/tourists ‘are footprints’. Treading lightly on the earth is a formula for tourism, tourism education, and transformative tourism education.
