Ran into this complex sentence:

The introduction into curricula of education about the value of tourist exchanges, their economic, social and cultural benefits, and also their risks, should be encouraged;(Source: Global code of ethics for tourism)

What does The introduction into curricula of education about mean? Does it mean Trying to teach about? Would you please rephrase it? Moreover, Would someone kindly rephrase the whole sentence? What is it trying to convey?

I find the English of the whole Code a bit not-fluent and complex. Am I right?

You have 'mis-bracketed' the pieces of this sentence. It works like this

The introduction of education should be encouraged. = Somebody should encourage people to introduce education = to bring education into something

   Introduce education where? Bring it into what? —Introduce education into curricula.
   Bring it into the formal schedules of courses and their content.)

   What kind of education? —Education about the value of tourist exchanges,
    their economic, social and cultural benefits, and also their risks

We should encourage the people in charge of education to put teaching about these important subjects into their courses.

    Wow! So if I am not mistaken the sentence is The introduction(covering, including) of education(knowledge) about the value of tourist exchanges, their economic, social and cultural benefits, and also their risks into curricula(of schools) should be encouraged. Am I right, sir?

    @Juya, mostly, except introduce into does not mean to provide a preliminary account but to bring something new into a situation -- to make this new subject matter a part of the curriculum. Aug 20 '14 at 1:18
  • Could you kindly tell me what tourist exchanges mean? looks like it means receiving tourist from other countries and sending tourist to other countries. Am I right?

    @Juya It's probably not a matter of a formal exchange directed by governments but the flow of tourists in both directions. Apr 23 '15 at 11:55
