Right on schedule for the new training year: Going Green Guidelines have been finalised
Starting this week, the new students will begin their training year at the Don Bosco Hotel School Sihanoukville. Right on schedule for the new training year, the Going Green Guidelines have been finalised. The project, supported by TUI Care Foundation, reaches and important milestone: The Guidelines provide an introduction into the subject of sustainability and give practical advice on how the students can apply a sustainability approach in the school’s training hotel. The focus lies on handling waste, water, energy and food management.
The Guidelines comprise a set of criteria aimed at the four areas Food & Beverage, Housekeeping, Front Office and Culinary. For each area, there are extensive check lists available to which students can rely in their prospective daily work routine.
“For me it was very important to learn about food waste and that we can compost it. Before I had the training, I used a lot of water. Now I only take short showers to reduce my water consumption,” explains Kakada, a young student at the hotel school.
The Guidelines complement sustainability trainings, regular “Morning Talks” and practical actions of the Green Team and the students. The Going Green Guidelines are available for download on the project page.
The project supports the trainees of the Don Bosco Hotel School in Cambodia in gaining an understanding of sustainable tourism and thereby enhances the job opportunities of the young people. At the same time, the tourism in Cambodia in general will get more sustainable by profiting from their multiplier effects.
