Webinar Description

Tour guiding career and local community support: academia and practice
Tour guides are tourism professionals who interpret the attractiveness of their country including the culture, lifestyle, and natural landscape to visitors from abroad. The tour guides help the local culture stay alive because they safeguard local culture and heritage. By expressing the value of their destination they encourage local cultural preservation by both the local community and the tourists including the tangible and intangible cultural heritage.

Tour guides play a variety of functions while they introduce their region to tourists. They serve as cultural moderators, promoters of local products and services, and local community supporters.

This webinar brings together academia who are specialized / and practitioners of tour guiding to discuss the tour guiding career and its support to the local communities in tourism destinations.

Webinar Global Time
Impacts of climate change on tourist destinations
Climate change has come to the fore as a global issue, threatening the livelihood of the human being. The brunt of climate change is vividly presented by a series of events in various parts of the earth. Tourism destinations, which largely rely on the beauty of nature as a way of enticing tourist demand, are inescapable from the effect of climate change. For example, in the Arctic, the pace of temperature increase is twice as faster than that of non-Arctic regions, wearing off the food chain feeding polar bears. This panel is to stroke scholarly discourses on the resilience and adaptation strategies coping with crisis from climate disasters through case discussions transpiring in California, Queensland, and Nordic regions.
