The calls for tourism to change are increasing. Since 2006, TEFI has been advocating for a shift in the values underpinning tourism curricula, in the way tourism is taught, and to diversify learning opportunities.
The values-based shift that TEFI developed, and has continued to evolve over almost two decades, has now morphed into a new language of purpose.
Purpose-led or valued-based, whatever the term you like to use, the TEFI community has been developing, advocating, experimenting and sharing their insights for many years.
We share with you some of these legacy resources and references below. More are to be found in the TEFI community.
Over the years, a wide range of research reports, books, special issues and papers have been produced by TEFI members. Here you will find key resources. Join our community and you will be able to find and share more.
We would like to collect and record any legacy documents associated with TEFI's journey, so if you would like to submit any documents to our digital archive please contact us.
