In association with the University of Winchester the European Union Global Diaspora Facility (EUDiF) will host a virtual discussion based on latest research by the two institutions.

The webinar, which is open to all is scheduled for 15 June 2022, at 14.30-16:00 (CEST)via Zoom, in English.

Based on the latest research the event will seek to explore the relationship between entrepreneurship in the heritage tourism industry, and the notion of identity among young diaspora members with a special focus on concrete diaspora-engagement action.

The researchers will discuss how the case study has enabled them to delve into the varied ways in which youth diasporas engage in heritage tourism; with examples taken from three countries: Barbados, Brazil and Rwanda. 

Speakers at the event will include Dr Jen Dickinson from University of Winchester, Fernando Rodrigues de Almeida of Jalapao Good Vibes, and Linda Mutesi of the Rwanda Development Board.

Professor Niall Finneran from University of Winchester and Joyce Sarpong of AfricaOracle will moderate the webinar, which will also be an occasion to share lessons learned from multiple initiatives involving diaspora youth in heritage tourism, as well as to showcase the multiple entry points for diaspora youth to support the heritage sector.

Register HERE to be part of the discussion on how entrepreneurship in the heritage tourism sector can influence youth diaspora identity and long-term engagement.
