8 july 2024

The 2024 Adeje Summer University will address the impact of tourism on the culture, traditions, and historical heritage of the Canary Islands, as well as the context and objectives outlined in the Canary Islands Sustainable Development Agenda (ACDS). These aspects will be the focus of the seminars “Gestión de impactos socioculturales del turismo” and “Canarias en acción: participación y sostenibilidad”, “Management of Socio-Cultural Impacts of Tourism and Canary Islands in Action: Participation and Sustainability) which will be held from July 22nd to 26th in the morning. Both events will be in Spanish.

Led by Alberto J. Rodríguez Darias, a professor in Social Anthropology at the University of La Laguna, the course on the management of socio-cultural impacts of tourism is aimed at students and workers in the sector who want to better understand the tourism system. The objective of the course is to equip them with the necessary skills to identify the effects of tourism and to teach them how to use tools that allow them to make a diagnosis to design appropriate strategies to address them.

The course, which will take place from July 22nd to 24th, from 9am to 1pm each day, will feature various experts in the field who will base their interventions on both in-person classes and the analysis of specific cases and group work.

The second seminar which also has a direct impact on the islands' tourism activity, is hat looking at participation and sustainability and will run from July 22nd to 25th in the mornings. Led by University of La Laguna professor Itahisa Pérez Pérez, the course proposes an analysis of the Canary Islands Sustainable Development Agenda (ACDS) through the development and application of socio-educational strategies to improve community and emotional health.
