Tourism – Ready for Recovery

The COVID-19 pandemic is having an unprecedented impact on the global travel and tourism industry.

To help prepare the industry for recovery, Dr Sarah Gardiner from Griffith Institute for Tourism has created a FREE micro-credential short course called Tourism – Ready for Recovery. This course provides you with key insights and information, videos, activities, scenarios and case studies to assist you to navigate your way through this crisis, consider your recovery action plan and emerge more resilient and competitive as borders reopen and restrictions ease.

Upon completion of the course, you will receive a Griffith digital badge that you can use to promote that you are ready for recovery.

Bushfire stories

The 2019-2020 bushfires were devastating. Not only did they burn forests, farms, buildings to the greatest extent ever recounted, but they also took the life of 34 people and more than a billion animals (CDP, 2020). In Queensland specifically, more than half of the Gondwana world heritage rainforests were burned, including the iconic Binna Burra Lodge.

Our multidisciplinary research project is contributing to bushfire recovery and resilience and is jointly funded under the Commonwealth/State Disaster Recovery Funding Arrangements 2020.

Our project aims to build community resilience to disasters by gathering and sharing first-hand experiences of the community responses.
