Responsible Tourism in Monaghan
About the Course
This Course start date is yet to be confirmed.
This course is for people who are interested in respecting Monaghan’s landscape and amenities in the context of responsible tourism and environmental soundness.
Once in the Course, through the process of Design Thinking, your group will assess County Monaghan in an environmental context to decide on the focus and an expected outcome.
Monaghan has many amenities available for both locals and visitors to enjoy, such as beauty spots, historical or cultural places, and businesses. These activity spots are often linked by cycle and walkways, or roads. How can we ensure that we are offering these amenities responsibly and respectfully?
Innovating Communities courses are led by Design Thinking experts and community volunteer 'co-trainers' to help training teams tackle projects like these. Our Design Thinking training teaches valuable skills that can be used to create people-centred, innovative plans in response to challenges or opportunities like the one above. You will also have access to 1-on-1 mentoring from your trainer and co-trainer. Co-trainers are volunteers from your county with knowledge and/or experience in community action.
The schedule will be determined once an interested Team have registered their interest and are ready to begin. The Course length can vary between 21 and 42 hours of training based on the availability of the Team and the weight of the Challenge. You and your Team will be expected to commit to weekly training sessions, typically 2 hours in length. The team will also conduct community research and outreach during various stages of the course, between sessions.
