Welcome to Divetour connectivist MOOC! It is a pleasure to have you on board. Feel free to use the different tools we made available to you to learn and to connect to your peers. It will be great if you like to leave a line here about yourself. Ok, I can start first. My name is Emiliano, I work for ENAT, the European Network for Accessible Tourism, and I will be one of the moderators of the forum, trying to be your facilitator in case of doubts and questions. I write from Brussels, where I live, and I am particularly trying to type here from the METRO (the underground)! 😂 I will be happy to know about you! Welcome again

Hi Natallia, I am very happy to see you here! I hope everything is going well for you. Perhaps there are some students at your university following the MOOC? There is always the possibility to share “good practices” in tourism services, here in the MOOC. I hope you find it useful! We keep in touch.January 26, 2023 at 5:35 pm #5206CarolinaParticipant

Hallo, my name is Carla Sabatini, I was a teacher of tourism in a vocational high school in Rome and now I am retired, but I am still interested in the tourism sector. I wrote three school books about accessible and sustainable tourism and now I am writing another work on the same topic. I take part in this course because I think I have always something to learn. Many greetings to all of you I had the pleasure to meet in Perugia last year.January 26, 2023 at 8:54 pm #5210
Dear Carla, it is a pleasure to have you here, as you will see there are participants with different backgrounds and expectations, but we are all interested in understanding the present challenges of our sector while considering accessibility and inclusion keys to the regeneration of tourism. I invite you and your peers to make connections and participate actively to the forum topics, and you have the chance to meet the partnership during the first webinar, Friday 27th of January 10:00 to 11:00 CET: https://eshob.zoom.us/j/97059269701January 27, 2023 at 6:53 am #5212Maria Stella MinutiParticipant

Hi everyone, my name is Angela Tendas Mele, founder of GreenerVibes online tour operator.
GreenerVibes aims to provide sustainable and dynamic tours and experiences in Italy.
With regards to accessibility, we started to arrange tailor-made tours for groups of disabled people but our goal is to make these tours available for everyone on our platform.
Thanks for arranging this course and providing all these useful info and material.January 31, 2023 at 9:28 am #5300
Thank you very much Angela for your message! Your activity and experience give us the chance to explore the strong ties between what we call “sustainability” and “inclusion”! It could be interesting to talk together here, also for our peers participants, about why accessibility is sustainable, and how both concepts are not only a possible offer of tourism like others, but they are at the core of a new regenerative tourism, which is more in line with the expectations of tourists and communities, and probably also a new business model.VISITFLANDERS has written a great Memorandum on that, you find it in our list of recommended document, it is called “Travel to Tomorrow”! The floor is yours now, dear participants!
