Sustainable tourism for sustainable society
Tourism is one of the largest industries in the world. It is also an indicator of our society in many ways. There is a dire need for the society to rapidly become environmentally friendly, even regenerative, while at the same time taking into account economic and socio-cultural sustainability. This pressure is changing tourism. In this webinar the main aspects of sustainability are examined in the tourism context. This elaborates how tourism as an industry can provide pathways for the whole society to become sustainable in the long run.
