END OF EXCESSIVE TOURISM?
Perspectives on Sustainability of (mass)Tourism
Mobility has been challenged by Covid-19, transportation systems paralyzed, and international border closed—with carefree travel in a distance. Since past “excess” in tourism is subjected to criticism and because post-pandemic tourists would be stressed by crowds, destinations have no choice but to rethink their futures. Tourism needs to be directed by novel steering systems. With sustainability taken seriously and existing business models considered ineffective, feedback is needed to guide development of tourism experience. This webinar discusses whether some of the “old normal” practices can return, whether new and more sustainable forms of (mass)tourism—coupled with resiliency and guided by transformational forces—can be nested in small and large-scale destinations. The discussion will be complemented with Q/A exchanges between panelists and participants.
