A group of Lithuanian professors

A group of teachers from Lithuania has visited several places in Mallorca to be interested in the tourism model of the island, as well as the sustainability policies applied in the territory.
Specifically, 8 teachers from different departments of the Marijampole VET Center Institute of Lithuania, including the director of the centre, who will stay three days on the island and during their stay in Mallorca have visited places such as the old town of Palma, the Olivar market or the cathedral.

In addition, some of them already teach the subject of sustainability in the centre to their students, so a didactic and informative talk has also been organized in the offices of Tourism of the Consell de Mallorca, located in La Misericordia.
The meeting was attended by the Counsellor of Tourism of the insular institution, José Marcial Rodríguez Díaz, who was accompanied by the insular director of Tourism for Governance and Sustainability, Pedro Mas.

During the talk, the councillor thanked the Lithuanian delegation for their visit and conveyed to the teachers the firm will of the insular institution to work towards a more sustainable, social and economic model of environmental tourism. “Mallorca has everything to be a benchmark in sustainable tourism, our goal is to improve coexistence within a framework of sustainable development of tourism,” said Rodriguez.
In this line, the head of Tourism has recalled that Mallorca’s goal is to project itself internationally as a sustainable destination, for which “we must protect and regenerate the qualities and values that make this island a wonderful place to live, while it is a wonderful place to visit”.

The visit has been coordinated by Internship Mallorcawoks, which specialises in organizing Erasmus scholarships for students and teachers from all over Europe, as well as visits of students who come to do their internships in different sectors of Mallorca and observation visits of teachers.
Finally, the day ended with a talk on circular economy by Erica Garcia, responsible for sustainability at Garden Hotels, in which she explained to the attendees the process of obtaining the Aenor seal of circularity that the Mallorcan hotel chain obtained last year, the first award of its kind at European level.
