Cuilcagh Lakelands Geopark has organised a Business Sustainability Training Programme, facilitated by The Tourism Space to take place in September 2022. The Business Sustainability Training Programme is a framework that allows businesses located within Cuilcagh Lakelands UNESCO Global Geopark to come together to build a sustainable tourism offering, achieve cost savings through reductions in waste, water and energy consumption and benefit from becoming a member of The Geopark Business Network.
The Geopark is working to expand The Geopark Business Network and invites businesses to complete the Geoparks Sustainability Training Programme as an entry point for membership.
The training programme is highly practical providing businesses with the tools to establish baseline information and benchmark standards in the areas of energy, water, and waste management. The programme also expands to cover biodiversity, conservation, marketing, and promotion.

This is a 10-week programme that will commence on Tuesday 6 September 2022 and finish on Tuesday 15 November 2022.
