Since 2002 the Flemish Tourism Board, the executive agency of the Flemish Ministry of Tourism, has implemented different actions to introduce the principles of sustainable tourism into tourism education in Flanders.
The general objective is to stimulate teachers, trainers and professors within the tourism education sector to fully integrate the framework and current knowledge on sustainable tourism development within their teachings. Once this integration process is implemented, a Learning Network will be developed so that these teachers, trainers and professors are able to meet on regular bases to exchange their experiences with this integration process and the teaching of sustainable tourism in general.
Because of the different structure and specific needs the High School level education and Higher Education Institutes were targeted separately.
