The Tourism and Aboriginal Sustainability minor will combine Aboriginal and tourism units to create a new learning space for environmental management students that will challenge their perspectives on sustainability from a business framework and Aboriginal standpoint. Students will undertake case studies, critically examine tourism impacts and explore the economic, human and environmental relationships to tourism management through an environmental and Aboriginal context. The minor will deconstruct students’ knowledge on creating and maintaining ethical relationships with Aboriginal people while deepening disciplinary understanding on Aboriginal sustainability. Students will explore and critically analyse tourism and its impact on Aboriginal participation through a decolonising lens that will provide a framework for future engagement with Aboriginal community and provide learning on the creation of sustainable urban environments for all people.
