The RISE Travel Institute Student Conference is an annual event where students from the Flagship Certificate Program in Sustainability and Anti-Oppression in Travel present their capstone projects to the community.
During the ten sessions of the RISE Flagship Certificate Program students interact with professionals and academics in tourism, social justice, animal protection, and climate change, cultivating an understanding of the different frameworks of sustainability and how to approach sustainable travel holistically.
As the culmination of a comprehensive, structured, and research-based education on sustainable travel through a systems approach and an anti-oppression lens, the conference offers students the opportunity to share their ideas, remarks, reflections, and initiatives to make the travel and tourism industry and more just, sustainable and inclusive one.
This conference is in partnership with the NYU Travel and Tourism Research Collaboratory, NYU SPS Jonathan M. Tisch Center of Hospitality.
If you are in the New York area, they would love to see you in-person at the NYU Tisch Center of Hospitality, located at 7 East 12th Street, New York, NY 10003 on the 7th floor.
If you cannot join them in-person, please join them virtually on Zoom as this will be a hybrid event. Join them on Zoom here.
