Tourism is an important industry in many developing nations, where it supports economic development and propagates cultural heritage. This is undoubtedly the case in Indonesia which has a thriving tourism industry based on its abundant natural and cultural resources. The tourism industry in Indonesia, however, faces many challenges related to natural resource management and sustainable commercial practices. The need to develop sustainable tourism practices is a rapidly emerging issue in Indonesia as the industry – as it currently operates – continues to deplete the nation’s natural and environmental resources. ACICIS’ Sustainable Tourism Professional Practicum will provide Australian students with the opportunity to gain an understanding of the social, cultural and political systems that underpin the tourism industry in Indonesia, and to consider issues relating to sustainability and resource management within the sector. They will also gain practical skills in hospitality, management and other commercial practices within Indonesia’s tourism and hospitality sector.
