The Croatian organisation Green Sail, which aims to develop sustainable tourism in the nautical sector, has launched its first ever marine sustainability online course.
The ‘Introduction to Marine Sustainability’ course has been designed by the organisation to raise awareness about pollution in the marine industry and the need for sustainable tourism now and in the future. The introductory-level course – completely free to all users – provides students with a useful insight into what approaches can be used to implement sustainability in tourism and how best to protect marine life. Anyone with an interest in sustainability, responsible tourism and marine protection will definitely be interested in Green Sail’s course.
Green Sail has been operating for a number of years in the sustainability sphere, working diligently to shift people’s behaviour and attitudes around sustainability, particularly in the nautical tourism sector. Green Sail has launched its marine sustainability online course as a response to the needs of the tourism industry. The organisation has switched to online learning; its on-site training has, unfortunately, had to be paused due to the coronavirus pandemic.
