Role of Women in Malaysian Tourism

Before March 2020 I didn't have any experience about Malaysia. But last year, our university startet a new ERASMUS+ project with Malaysia calles MYSUN with #Adis Krdzalic as project coordinator. The interesting aim of this Erasmus+ Capacity Building in Higher Education project is to promote Malaysian university campuses as “living laboratories” for sustainability and energy efficiency.

What has this to do with women? Well, most of the members of this prjects are women. The first meeting in Spain, Alicante, was impressiv.
What has this to do with tourism? Not a lot, but I found some interesting articles about the role of women in tourism in Malaysia:

Women Empowerment through Ecotourism Activities in Lower Kinabatangan Area of Sabah, East Malaysia

“Tourism” a Vehicle for Women’s Empowerment: Prospect and Challenges

Would be an interesting issue to follow...

Ceterum censeo mutationem climae esse vincendem.

(Incidentally, I think that global warming must be defeated)
