Lecture hours per week 3
Lab hours per week
Course Availability: Open

The implications of creating a tourism product in both local and international communities will be further explored within a social justice framework. Students will discuss the concept of social justice as a process rather than an outcome and consider how the fair (re)distribution of resources, opportunities, privileges and responsibilities can impact local communities and businesses. The concepts and skills related to building social solidarity and community capacity for collaborative action while building a tourism and food service and product will also be investigated. Students will also examine local, national and global communities for potential tourism visitors and how to work collaboratively and equitably with all stakeholders when developing a food tourism enterprise.
