Equipping tourism professionals to become part of the child protection system

Equipping tourism professionals to become part of the child protection system

In an ongoing programme ECPAT Sri Lanka, led by ECPAT International is engaged in activities concerning regulating the issue of voluntourism, the project aims to generate sectoral momentum by equipping tourism professionals to become part of the child protection system. In order to achieve this goal, ECPAT International conducts extensive research and reviews existing practices through desk research and literature reviews. Additionally, it will actively engage and collaborate with various stakeholders, including regional tourism associations worldwide to gather insights and input on how to integrate child protection courses into tourism sector-focused curricula and training. Through these efforts, it aims to raise awareness and promote the importance of protecting children in the tourism industry.

These activities will take a consultative process with youth and children and their perspectives will always be considered. An international workshop by ECPAT International will gather experts from the tourism education sector to distil the core competencies, distinguished by a set of indicators with knowledge, skills and attitudes required to adapt the tourism practices on child protection in practical terms.
