Your classroom | the Balinese community

Nature is the most important source for tourism, thus, ecotourism especially focuses on approaches of integrating tourism into the ecosystem. But particularly tourism in Bali also has a huge impact in the local community: it is challenging traditional and religious practices of the Balinese Hindu and, with many investors coming from abroad, is lacking to include the local community. Within this summer course you will have the chance to visit not only resorts with a greener vision, but also villages, that have successfully integrated a concept that is green, is empowering its local people and is in line with their life concept, also known as the Tri Hita Karana. An opportunity and approach that you won’t find anywhere else in the world.
