TOURBiNE is a project that aims to create an enabling environment for the success of young people not in employment or in education in a global economic context. The project will do this by reorienting tourism education in the project area with digital, social, and intercultural competencies, and by actively supporting selected target groups and stakeholders to tackle strategic innovation in heritage tourism.
TOURBiNE addresses young people within the age group 22-30, including unemployed graduates, and strives to improve their qualifications so as to meet the growing demands for a highly skilled labor force in the EU. The EUROPEAN RECOVERY PLAN demonstrates an EU–wide commitment to create conditions for a more competitive economy and a higher employment rate walking the roads of social inclusion, the enhancement of services, and the convergence of supply and demand and the European Education Area. The tourism sector will remain a source of job creation contributing to growth in Europe and an excellent conduit for promoting social inclusion with new skills for new jobs, thus TOURBiNE aims to contribute to achieving it.
The TOURBiNE project has five general objectives:
The TOURBiNE project is a partnership of organizations from seven countries: Turkey, the Netherlands, Greece, Jordan, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Egypt, and Tunisia. The project is funded by the Erasmus+ program of the European Union.
