UNWTO and the State Secretariat for Economic Affairs are launching the 2022Ā UNWTO Studentsā€™ League - Switzerland, an innovativeĀ environment to empower and motivate tourism and hospitality studentsĀ by giving themĀ real-time experience.

Through an online competition, Students from around the world will compete to give the tourism sector their best sustainable ideasĀ on the pressing subjects of the sector,Ā such asĀ the themes chosen for this year,Ā Tourism for Rural development, through the challenge ā€œOff the Beaten Trackā€.

This competitionĀ bridges the gap betweenĀ studentsā€™Ā education and trainingĀ and theĀ realities of our sectorĀ and therefore not only gives students more insight on our sector and on the possible job avenues that exist but alsoĀ enables these young peopleĀ to then enter the labour market asĀ highly qualified and skilled professionalsĀ capable of adapting to any situation that may arise.

  • What do students gain?
    • ExperienceĀ from working on a real situation in the Tourism sector
    • Learning about the best practicesĀ in the field from top professionals
    • Networking
    • Winning solutionsĀ will be publishedĀ inĀ UNWTO e-publication
    • Exciting prizes
