“This puts us at a state of high alarm,” said Jeff Hauser, who runs the Revolving Door Project, a liberal group that has been pressuring the Biden administration to stay away from not only lobbyists but also individuals coming out of the business world whom Mr. Hauser and other activists call “corporatists.”His concerns are an early manifestation of a percolating and broader clash between the progressive wing of the Democratic Party and the more establishment members of Mr. Biden’s core team over the role of corporate executives, lobbyists and consultants in the incoming administration. An early indicator of Mr. Biden’s efforts to navigate this divide will come when he announces ethics rules for his government, a move expected in the hours after his inauguration.- Advertisement – WASHINGTON — The alarm bells sounded immediately among some progressives when President-elect Joseph R. Biden Jr. released the list of advisers this week who will help him with the transition at the White House’s Office of Management and Budget, which oversees the $5 trillion federal budget and shapes regulations on everything from labor standards to air pollution.Mr. Biden’s team included executives from Amazon Web Services, Lyft, Airbnb and a vice president of WestExec Advisors, a Washington consulting firm whose secretive list of clients includes financial services, technology and pharmaceutical companies.- Advertisement – The progressive activists want him to adopt hiring practices that go far beyond policies embraced by former President Barack Obama, who barred officials in his administration from working on issues on which they had lobbied in the past two years.The Biden transition team did not respond to several requests to comment. – Advertisement –
The project “Ambassadors of Modern Tourism” consists of a series of workshops, evaluation of acquired knowledge and the award of the certificate “Ambassador of Modern Tourism”. Everything is done with games, quizzes, associations, visuals, comparisons, competitions, group work, creativity, role-playing because both we adults and children, when they are relaxed, are more satisfied, and when they are more satisfied they will remember easier and longer. The focus of the project is to raise awareness and teach children the key elements important for tourism, ie what it really means to live in a tourist city, who is a tourist and what are his expectations, what are the advantages and disadvantages of tourism as a career, what is modern tourism, what is multiculturalism through the role of small performers to encourage them to get better acquainted with the historical-traditional-cultural features of Poreč and Istria. “The purpose of the project is to encourage the development of awareness among children, parents and society about the need for early awareness of the advantages, disadvantages, effects and specifics of tourism and thus integrate children into tourism and specifically educate them about key elements related to work, trends and culture. This is especially important for tourist destinations where whole families work in tourism and where children grow up with tourism without first and quality preparations and explanations of what this system is, why and how it is important to families, what is the role of each individual and the like. ”Points out Marinela Dropulić Ružić. The holder of the project is the City of Poreč, the implementation of which is co-financed by the Croatian Children’s Foundation, and the project activities are carried out by the consultant and educator doc. dr. sc. Marinela Dropulić Ružić with associate Kristina Kulišić, mag oec. from Meraklis on groups of children in DV Radost, Summer Camp of the City of Poreč, and summer base DND Poreč. We are in an ungrateful and turbulent moment when it comes to tourism, so we look at this project as a beautiful and positive story with the aim of raising awareness and popularizing tourism – those who will feel, live, work in the future. Including children from preschool to 4th grade of primary school, this project aims to act nationally with the aim of raising awareness of the importance of lifelong learning in the field of tourism. In this way, the youngest generations are preparing for the tourism of the new age and the popularization of this profession is encouraged, which is quite degraded in the Republic of Croatia, and on the other hand extremely important for the economy. The city of Poreč is one of the top destinations in Croatia, but it is still looking for the right strategies in terms of human resources in tourism because it was a stronghold for a project that aims to create generations of tourism ambassadors. “We are extremely happy and proud of this project and the City of Poreč, which has recognized the importance of this approach to tourism development. This is an investment in the future”Concluded Dropulić Ružić. “The receptionist is not the one who gives recipes”, “Tourism is where tourists sleep and has wheels”, “Concierge opens cans”, “Tourism is a form of marketing”, “Pioneer is a profession in tourism” – these are some of the hilarious perspectives that doc. Marinela Dropulić Ružić, PhD, brings in the first days of the educational cycle which is carried out within the project “Ambassadors of modern tourism”.
